Obiettivi dell’insegnamento e risultati di apprendimento attesi
BIOLOGIA GENERALE, docente Giovanni Porta
The molecular, cellular, tissue and systemic scale of the human physio-pathology explained by the the biological and genetic point of view. Introduce the dictionary of the experimental and biological science applied to medicine. The knowledge of the pathological phenotype as the interaction of the genotype with the environment.

BIOLOGIA APPLICATA, docente Emanuela Maserati
The purpose of the course is to provide the basis for the study of biological phenomena in man, and to give to the students instruments to understand the genetic pathology.

BIOLOGIA APPLICATA, Docente Emanuela Maserati
The course is based on the acquisition of the molecular mechanisms of cell activities, and his intended to give the bases for the study of hereditary and non-hereditary diseases in man. Advanced technologies of cytogenetics and molecular biology will be acquired as tools that permit to understand and solve hereditary pathological problems.
In details:
1. Normal and pathological Karyotype in man
2. Gene Mutations and Cromosome Mutations
3. DUP, Genomic Imprinting
4. New technologies of Cytogenetics and of molecular biology
5. Genes and tumor
The molecular, cellular, tissue and systemic scale of the human physio-pathology explained by the the biological and genetic point of view. Introduce the dictionary of the experimental and biological science applied to medicine. The knowledge of the pathological phenotype as the interaction of the genotype with the environment.
