AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The module Forensic Genetics will provide the student a theoretical and practical knowledge of the Genetics application in forensic contexts. Starting from the foundation of Genetics and Population Genetics students will be made aware of the DNA profiling/typing principles at mitochondrial and nuclear level. Autosome and sex-chromosome-associate loci will be presented and explained. STR and SNP identification techniques will be presented focusing also in the New Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies. DNA databases will be presented and the student will be familiar with the interpretation and the presentation of genetic results in cases of human identification and paternity. A special section of the module will be dedicated to the molecular identification of animal and plant species. At the end of the module student will demonstrate competence and critical capacity to understand and apply DNA analysis in general and forensic contexts.
