At the end of the training activity the student should have acquired basic theoretical and practical knowledge related to the use and management of files, operating systems with graphical interface, bioinformatics programs and knowledge on interrogation of biological databases.
In particular, the student should be able to:
D1. Knowledge and ability to understand. The course is mainly aimed at acquiring practical skills in the use of computers in the biological field. Basic theoretical concepts necessary for the understanding of computer and bioinformatics applications will be provided.
D2. Ability to apply knowledge. Through practical exercises under the guidance of the teacher, students will have the opportunity to acquire practical skills on the use of "individual productivity" programs and on the use of the most important bioinformatics programs.
D3. Autonomy of judgement. Evaluate and interpret experimental data; use scientific literature data critically. Evaluate computational and experimental methodologies that allow optimal resolution of a biological problem.
D4. Communicative skills. Examples will be used to illustrate to students how to report analysis results to the computer in a written paper consisting of text and images and how to organise their results in a multimedia presentation.
D5. Learning ability. Being able to autonomously consult bibliographic material and databases; knowing how to self-train in the use of software; Participation in seminars and study days of training; Acquisition of a study methodology that allows the continuation of university education; Achievement of the skills required for placement in professional activities at the end of the three-year course.
