Learning objectives

The course aims at illustrating principles of genetic transmission at molecular, cellular and population level. Mendelian, molecular and population genetics elements will be taught. Existing traditional grapevine breeding methods, based on natural and induced genetic variability, and modern plant breeding instruments, genomic based, will be reviewed.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Knowledge of cell biology and physiology, organic chemistry and biochemistry

Program

Introduction to genetics, the different branches of genetics. Identification of genetic material from Griffith's experiments and from those of Avery, McLeod and McCarty.
Chemical, physical and functional structure of DNA. Organization of DNA.
The chromosomes.
DNA replication, Meselson and Stahl experiments, DNA polymerase and telomerase.
Gene expression and the central dogma of molecular biology Properties of RNA, types of RNA.
The genetic code and protein translation.
Gene regulation, differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
Gene mutations and repair mechanisms.
Natural and induced mutations.
Chromosomal and genomic mutations, aneuploidy and polyploidy.
Mitosis and cell cycle.
Meiosis and gamete formation.
Mendelian inheritance and chromosomal theory of inheritance. Extensions to Mendel's hypotheses, autosomal genes and genes linked to sex.
Associated genes and association maps.
Segregation and recombination and cytological basis. Qualitative and quantitative characters, Johanssen studies in bean.
Heritability, environmental and genetic variance.
Extranuclear inheritance, chloroplasts and mitochondria. Epigenetic inheritance.
Transposons and mobile elements.
Population genetics.
Genetic improvement of plants, conventional methods and methods based on genetic modification.
The goals of modern breeding in viticulture.

Lectures with laboratory exercises

Learning assessment procedures

The assessment of learning outcomes involves a written test with multiple choice questions, open questions and exercises. The test lasts 2 hours. To access the written test it is necessary to submit at least one week before the test the reports relating to the laboratory activities with compulsory attendance. If the mark in the written test is less than or equal to 20/30, the candidate will also have to sit an oral test. If the grade of the written test is higher than 20/30, the candidate can choose to take the oral test or accept the grade of the written test. The oral exam potentially covers all the topics of the program. The final evaluation is expressed out of thirty

Evaluation criteria

The scores attributed to the multiple choice answers, to the open answers and to the exercises will be explained in the exam text. The laboratory reports will be assigned the following scores: "1" for complete and well-structured relationships, "0" for sufficiently structured relationships and "-1" for incomplete relationships.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade will be calculated by adding the grade from the written test with the grade of the report.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D sono a scelta dello studente, quelle di tipologia F sono ulteriori conoscenze utili all’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro (tirocini, competenze trasversali, project works, ecc.). In base al Regolamento Didattico del Corso, alcune attività possono essere scelte e inserite autonomamente a libretto, altre devono essere approvate da apposita commissione per verificarne la coerenza con il piano di studio. Le attività formative di tipologia D o F possono essere ricoperte dalle seguenti attività.

1. Insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona

Comprendono gli insegnamenti sotto riportati e/o nel Catalogo degli insegnamenti (che può essere filtrato anche per lingua di erogazione tramite la Ricerca avanzata).

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: se l'insegnamento è compreso tra quelli sottoelencati, lo studente può inserirlo autonomamente durante il periodo in cui il piano di studi è aperto; in caso contrario, lo studente deve fare richiesta alla Segreteria, inviando a carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it il modulo nel periodo indicato.

2. Attestato o equipollenza linguistica CLA

Oltre a quelle richieste dal piano di studi, per gli immatricolati dall'A.A. 2021/2022 vengono riconosciute:

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza superiore a quello richiesto dal corso di studio (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
  • Altre lingue e italiano per stranieri: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza a partire da A2 (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).

Tali cfu saranno riconosciuti, fino ad un massimo di 6 cfu complessivi, di tipologia F se il piano didattico lo consente, oppure di tipologia D. Ulteriori crediti a scelta per conoscenze linguistiche potranno essere riconosciuti solo se coerenti con il progetto formativo dello studente e se adeguatamente motivati.

Gli immatricolati fino all'A.A. 2020/2021 devono consultare le informazioni che si trovano qui.

Modalità di inserimento a librettorichiedere l’attestato o l'equipollenza al CLA e inviarlo alla Segreteria Studenti - Carriere per l’inserimento dell’esame in carriera, tramite mail: carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it

3. Competenze trasversali

Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal TALC - Teaching and learning center dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti regolarmente iscritti all'anno accademico di erogazione del corso https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: non è previsto l'inserimento dell'insegnamento nel piano di studi. Solo in seguito all'ottenimento dell'Open Badge verranno automaticamente convalidati i CFU a libretto. La registrazione dei CFU in carriera non è istantanea, ma ci saranno da attendere dei tempi tecnici.  

4. Periodo di stage/tirocinio

Oltre ai CFU previsti dal piano di studi (verificare attentamente quanto indicato sul Regolamento Didattico): qui informazioni su come attivare lo stage. 

Verificare nel regolamento quali attività possono essere di tipologia D e quali di tipologia F.
