Learning outcomes

Module: BIOLOGIA MOLECOLARE
-------
Molecular Biology
The aim of this course is to provide a detailed description at the molecular level of the main issues regarding the mechanisms involved transmission, variation and expression of the information contained in the genome of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. The main themes of the course will be a detailed description of the processes of gene transcription and translation and those related to DNA replication and mutagenesis.


Module: LABORATORIO DI BIOINFORMATICA II
-------

Program

Module: BIOLOGIA MOLECOLARE
-------

General introduction and history. The structure of DNA and RNA. From genes to proteins, messenger RNA, transfer RNA and ribosomal RNA. The genetic code.
DNA and gene structure
The definition of gene. Coding and regulatory regions. Genes interrupted; introns.
Organization and evolution of genomes
DNA content and number of genes. Repetitive DNA. Gene families and gene duplication. Mutation, rearrangements of DNA and evolution of genomes.
