Learning outcomes

This course provides students with the knowledge about the basic concepts of database systems and their application in the modeling and management of biomedical data and information. Students will be able to understand the needs related to the management of biomedical information and will be able to autonomously propose suitable solutions for these complex biomedical domains. Students will be able to interact with different stakeholders, within a multidisciplinary community. He will also be able to acquire and use knowledge about all the future advances both in methodologies and technologies for the management of data and their application in the biomedical domain.
------------------------
MM: Fundamentals of database systems
------------------------
This module of the course provides the student with the main theoretical concepts of the relational data model, of object and object-relational data models, and of the semistructured and XML data models. Related query languages will be introduced and some related technical issues will be discussed.
------------------------
MM: Biomedical and bioinformatic data management
------------------------
The main aim of this course is introducing the students to manage biomedical and bioinformatics databases. In particular, object-oriented modeling techniques will be considered, together with the management of semistructured data. Attention will be paid to information retrieval techniques.

Program

------------------------
MM: Fundamentals of database systems
------------------------
* The relational data model: relational calculus, functional dependencies, normal forms and decompositions.
* Conceptual data modeling in UML
* Object and object-relational databases: data model and query language of SQL 3, UML for modeling object oriented databases.
* Semistructured databases: basic concepts, XML, XML Schema, UML for modeling semistructured datasets.
* Spatio-Temporal databases: basic concepts, data models, query languages (TSQL2, Simple Feature Specification for SQL OGC).
------------------------
MM: Biomedical and bioinformatics data management
------------------------
* Temporal databases: advanced topics
* Temporal Clinical Databases
* Querying biomedical XML data: Xpath and Xquery
* Electronic Medical Record systems
* Information retrieval techniques (a survey)

Examination Methods

The final score of the exam is the average of the scores obtained in the exams related to the modules.
------------------------
MM: Fundamentals of database systems
------------------------
The exam for this module consists of a written test of about 2.5 hours containing: (i) some exercises requiring the specification of queries and database design using one of the database models included in the program and (ii) open questions about the theory. During the semester, in a date to be decided with the students, an intermediate test will be proposed on the part of the program regarding: the relational calculus, the functional dependencies and the normalization.
------------------------
MM: Biomedical and bioinformatics data management
------------------------
The exam consists of an oral examinations with exercises and questions related to the different parts of the module, with the goal of verifying whether the student is aware of the theoretical content of the module and is able to apply it in real-world contexts.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D o F comprendono gli insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona o periodi di stage/tirocinio professionale.
Nella scelta delle attività di tipo D, gli studenti dovranno tener presente che in sede di approvazione si terrà conto della coerenza delle loro scelte con il progetto formativo del loro piano di studio e dell'adeguatezza delle motivazioni eventualmente fornite. Dal 1° dicembre 2021 al 27 febbraio 2022 e dal 2 maggio 2022 al 15 luglio 2022, tramite il presente modulo gli studenti possono richiedere l'inserimento di attività didattiche in TAF D ed F che non possono inserire autonomamente nel proprio piano di studi tramite la procedura on-line.

COMPETENZE LINGUISTICHE - dal 1° ottobre 2021 (Delibera del Consiglio della Scuola di Scienze e Ingegneria del 30 marzo 2021) per gli immatricolati dall'A.A. 2021/2022

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti automaticamente 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 automaticamente 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.
