The course aims to provide the student with the knowledge to understand the main phenomena involved in the biological processes of bacteria.
It aims to provide a multidisciplinary approach (genomics and metagenomics) for a comprehensive understanding of microorganism-host interactions in the field of microbiology applied to human health.
At the end of the course, students are expected to be able to:
1. Understand and know how to interpret the vast biodiversity in the microbiological field;
2. Be able to analyze and interpret genomic and metagenomic data related to microbiological studies (e.g., Comparative Genomics, 16S rRNA gene profiling, Shotgun Metagenomics);
3. Know which microbiological aspects are directly related to human health;
4. Learn how to communicate scientific research results concerning the human microbiota by drafting a research report.
