Curriculum: PERCORSO COMUNE
Date Time Classroom / Location

Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the basic knowledge in animal biology with particular regard to the composition, structure and function of the eukaryotic cell, the fundamental cell organelles, the genetic information transfer mechanisms. Such a course would also provide students, references to the scientific method which led to the understanding of the structures and mechanisms described.

chemical composition, structure and replication of DNA.
From DNA to proteins.
chemical composition and structure of RNA.
From DNA to RNA.
From RNA to proteins.
The control of gene expression.
The structure of membranes: the lipid bilayer and membrane proteins.
The transport across cell membranes: the principles, transporters and their functions, ion channels and membrane potential.
intracellular compartments and transport of proteins.

cell cycle. The cell cycle control system. Mitosis and meiosis.
The extracellular matrix and cell adhesion.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

In accordance with the Dublin Descriptors, at the end of the course and passing the exam, the student must demonstrate knowledge of the general problems of animal Biology: understanding the structure and the basic mechanisms of cell functioning, essential for subsequent areas on nutrition and food. Finally, the student must know how to expose shew with properties of language and appropriate terminology acquired knowledge and ability to analyze and discuss simple laboratory experiments.
