The course allows the student to focus on some problems and solutions needed to acquire the knowledge to understand the main phenomena involved in the biological processes of bacteria.
It aims to provide a multidisciplinary (genomic, ecological) approach for an effective understanding of biological and evolutionary processes in the field of applied microbial ecology.
At the end of the course, students are expected to be able to:
i) Know the logic and microbiological aspects of human health and welfare.
ii) Be able to analyze and critically interpret data and statistical products / reports (microbiota studies using 16S rRNA microbial profiling as well as shotgun metagenomics approaches).
iii) Knowing how to communicate the results of a research (in the field and empirical) through the preparation of a research report.
iv) Be able to build and manage relationships with people or groups (aimed at achieving the objectives of the planned work.
v) Knowing how to improve their performance (in terms of resources and results) based on a reference standard that respects well-being, biodiversity and sustainability.
