AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course consist of two modules: Biochemistry II and Structural Biology.

The Biochemistry II module aims to analyze in details some aspects of protein biochemistry and tissue/ specialized organ biochemistry. During the laboratory, selected innovative biochemical methods and technologies will be discussed, using examples from the literature.

The Structural Biology module aims to provide the basis for understanding the three-dimensional structure of macromolecules of biochemical and biotechnological interest such as proteins and nucleic acids.  The functional aspects to structural ones will be discussed through various examples present in the  literature.

TEACHING METHODS

Frontal lessons and laboratory.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

Module "Biochemistry II ":

Gli studenti potranno utilizzare alcuni testi di appoggio di Biochimica e Biologia cellulare per riprendere alcune nozioni di base che sono propedeutiche al corso.  Tuttavia, per molti argomenti che verranno trattati non sono al momento disponibili libri di testo. Verrà quindi fornito agli studenti del materiale in forma di dispense o lavori e reviews dalla letteratura scientifica.

Module "Structural Biology"

Struttura e funzioni delle proteine - Petsko G. A.; Ringe D. – Zanichelli
Introduction to Protein Structure - Branden C., Tooze J. - Garland Pub
