The objective of the course is to present the hereditary laws of the transmission of the physiological and pathological characters and the diagnostic approach based on current technology the medical personnel have to apply to study the hereditary diseases.
Moreover, introduce pivotal notions of chemistry and biochemistry for the knowledge of: a) f biological systems; b) functions and localization of cellular and tissue metabolic pathways.
