This Master’s Degree course includes two curricula: Biological Technologies and Computational Biology. Training activities of both programmes focus on molecular and cellular areas.
The “Biological Technologies” curriculum is designed to provide the acquisition of specific competencies in biochemistry, clinical biochemistry and microbiology for the identification of human proteins and main pathogens, significant for basic research and biomedical diagnostics. Students will also acquire skills to work on genomic data analysis and with biotechnologies in protein biochemistry, medically assisted reproduction, nanotechnology, plant and fermentation biotechnologies.
The “Computational Biology” curriculum provides students with competencies in genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, structural and biomolecular simulations, modeling and designing of bioactive molecules, programming languages and their application in bioinformatics and, more generally, technologies for health and life quality.
The shared modules are:
Modules of the “Biological Technologies” curriculum:
Modules of the “Computational Biology” curriculum
Graduates can have a career:
High-specialization: this course is provided by a Department of Excellence which includes 3 research centres, one facility for the High-Throughput Protein Production (HTPP) (NY-MaSBIC), an imaging laboratory (ARI LAB) and a centre for Computational Analysis. Students can access all these facilities, where they can work on their projects by applying the latest technologies and learn how to use them.
High employability: the new Computational Biology programme is the answer to the market’s strong demand for IT skills in the health, pharmaceutical and biotechnologies fields. Between 2020 and 2030, the employment rate in these sectors has been estimated to be three times higher than the average employment rate in any other field.
