ANATOMY FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY
For the comprehension of the course of ANATOMIA PER LE BIOTECNOLOGIE, the basis of cytology and histology are necessary.
The exam will consist of an oral test during which the student will be asked to discuss a topic of human anatomy and to develop it by completing it with the solutions adopted by the various classes of vertebrates.
In particular, the exam aims at evaluating the basic knowledge possessed by the student of the morphology of the adult human body regarding the treated systems and at the understanding of their evolutionary path thanks to the comparison of the same systems in the sub-phylum Vertebrata.
The use of an appropriate language will also be evaluated. In an oral exposition text in the academic field, indeed, it is necessary to master a scientific type of language that is characterized by a complex speech and a technical vocabulary. Among the sentences that make up the speech in its complexity, there must be a good logical-semantic coherence. The technical vocabulary, on the other hand, is necessary because it points to the uniqueness of interpretation where, as a rule, a meaning is expressed by one signifier, and a signifier represents a precise meaning.
The result of the exam will be in thirtieths.
The course provides basic notions of human and comparative anatomy. The notions of human anatomy are needed by biotechnologists interested in medical biotechnology. Those of comparative anatomy want to guide the student to touch the evolutionary changes the brought human anatomy to be as it is.
At the end of the course, the student will have:
- acquired the basics of human anatomy;
- acquired the basics of the comparative anatomy and embryology of vertebrates;
- understood the evolutionary pathways of the different classes of vertebrates.
