ACQUIRING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
Students are expected to acquire a good knowledge of methods for biological sequence analysis and of query sequence and domain databases, and a good familiarity with public databases and software for analysis and results visualization
APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
Through guided exercises, students will gain the basic skills necessary to face the study of new biological sequences, hypothesizing their function, evolutionary history, structure and localization.
Students will also acquire basic information and specific application examples on one of the most advanced fields of post-genomic research, with special reference to the new frontiers of molecular pharmacology and toxicology, “systems biology” and other modern applications of biotechnology to drug discovery.
