Edizione unica

Laboratory practices will be held according to the rules of the hosting laboratories, if suitably equipped for the COVID emergency, otherwise they will be substituted with live or recorded video tutorials. If the situation should worsen to a general lockdown, the faculty may have to waiver a part of these activities and replace them with online lectures or webinars focused on methodological issues.
Evaluations will be held in preferentially in the classrooms, or alternatively using the Microsoft Teams or other remote platform.
There are 6 CFU for the course, equivalent to 96 hours of practical laboratory activities that must be performed during the year (first and second semester).
These should be equally divided among three omics laboratories. Attendance to a Genomics and a Proteomics laboratory is mandatory. Students will also attend a third omics laboratory of their choice; The latter will be proposed by the student and assigned by the Faculty based on matching between requests and availability.
In each laboratory, student will:
· Become familiar with the basic methods;
· Learn the basic use of specific equipment;
· Perform experiments under the supervision of the omics lab personnel.
Students are expected to have basic laboratory skills. No specific expertise in omics methods is required.
Metodi didattici
Rotations in different omics laboratories or facilities (Genomics, Proteomics, High throughput screenings, Molecular pathology, Radiomics, Imaging, etc.) will be organized by the faculty. Students will attend in small groups or individually, so as to ensure a hands-on experience. Students will be assigned tutors within each lab who will be responsible of following their daily practical activities.
Materiale di riferimento
There are no specific texts.
Protocols will be provided by the faculty and tutors.
Modalità di verifica dell’apprendimento e criteri di valutazione
Students will closely follow the activities of each omics lab they attend. At the end of each internship, students will deliver:
· a brief data-report on the activity they performed in each omics lab (1 page/laboratory)
· a power-point presentation summarizing their activity.
Students will be evaluated on their understanding of the methods and the protocols used in each laboratory.
The evaluation will consist of "pass" or "fail" on the basis of attendance, punctuality, and quality of the data reports. Students will not receive a numerical mark.
