Learning outcomes

The course introduces to the structure and functions of genomes for both prokaryotes and eukary-otes. Main topic will be structural genomics, that rapidly evolved thanks to next-generation sequenc-ing, assembly of huge datasets, comparison of assembled genomes, annotation of the main charac-teristics and sequences contained in the assembled genomes, prediction and classification of genes and non-coding portions, transposable and retrotransposon elements.

In addition, the course will illustrate approaches for genome mapping, both physical and genetic. It will provide knowledge on methods for the development of molecular markers and maps; it will spe-cifically introduce the use of genetic and molecular information for the interpretation of sequencing data and their use in the assembling and understanding of genome structure and information con-tained therein. It will introduce to the annotation of genomes and to the critical interpretation of aforementioned gene functions. An introduction to epigenetic and epigenomic analyses is also planned.

Finally, the course will illustrate the major genome projects, from the human genome to specific ex-amples of bacterial, fungal and plant genomes. Case studies will be presented along with their critical reading; the aim will be to analyse the strategies adopted in the sequencing of genomes of the main crops of agricultural interest, from cereals to industrial plants, from model plants to fruit plants. Finally, the course will provide an introduction to metagenomics, illustrating some significant projects, from the study of the oceans to extreme habitats.

Attendance

As stated in point 25 of the Teaching Regulations for the A.Y. 2021/2022, attendance is not mandatory. However, professors may require students to attend lectures for a minimum of hours in order to be able to take the module exam, in which case the methods that will be used to check attendance will be explained at the beginning of the module. 
Please refer to the Crisis Unit's latest updates for the mode of teaching.
