Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the knowledge of biology, biochemistry and genetics necessary for understanding the physiological and pathological processes related to the health and disease of individuals in different age groups. Biological and biochemical knowledge will contribute to the acquisition of skills aimed at promoting the adoption of practices that improve the person's health and nursing care. To complete the course the student will have acquired: basic knowledge of organic chemistry and biochemistry on the structure-function relationships of the main classes of biological macromolecules, on the metabolic regulation at the molecular level and the energy transformations of biochemical processes; knowledge of cellular and genetic biology related to the structural, functional and molecular characteristics of the cell; understanding of the applications of genomic knowledge to medicine. This knowledge will enable us to understand cellular processes common to all living organisms and in particular the basic mechanisms that regulate metabolic activity, reproduction and cellular interactions and the mechanisms of transmission of genetic diseases in humans. BIOCHEMISTRY MODULE: The course aims to provide: - basic knowledge of general and organic chemistry preparatory to biochemistry. - knowledge on the structure-function relationships of the main classes of biological macromolecules and on metabolic regulation at the molecular level. - knowledge on the interconnections existing between the different biochemical processes and the energy transformations connected to them. At the end of the course the student / student must demonstrate to have acquired terminologies and notions useful for a critical analysis of the vital biochemical processes in order to achieve autonomy of critical and global evaluation of the processes themselves. APPLIED BIOLOGY MODULE: The course aims to provide the basic knowledge of biology and human genetics describing in particular the basic principles on which the biology is based, the structural, functional and molecular characteristics of the cellular processes common to all living organisms, the transmission of hereditary traits and the molecular basis of genetic diseases, while developing an appropriate language. In particular, aspects of human biology of particular biomedical interest will be highlighted during the course. At the end of the course the student will be able to understand the mechanisms that regulate life, cell reproduction, interactions between cells and to recognize the different modes of transmission of Mendelian characters and genetic diseases in humans. Essential information to deal with the subsequent lessons that the student will meet during the course of study.

Examination Methods

Goal of the exam for the Course of Biomolecular fondamentals of Life: to verify students' advanced comprehension of the whole program topics and their capability to expose their reasoning in a critical and precise manner using appropriate scientific terms.

6 examination sessions are foreseen in the whole Academic Year: 2 in the Winter Session after the Course ending, 2 in the Summer Session, and 2 in the Autumn session.
Students will undertake both modules (written test made of multiple choice quizzes and open questions) if they have attended at least 75% of the frontal teaching activity of the entire Course; further information about exam organization is available in each module form.

The final mark (/out of 30) will derive from the evaluation of both modules. Students will pass the examination if the overall rating of both modules, based on the weighted average of credits, is greater than or equal to 18/30. Students can retire or refuse the proposed mark.
Students who do not pass both exam modules in the same session will have to take the missing/insufficient module in one of the subsequent sessions, if only within the extra winter session of the next Academic Year. From the next summer session, students will need to take both modules.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE
