Genetics Genomics and Bioinformatics

The curriculum Genetics, Genomics and Bioinformatics focuses on the study of the genetic and molecular mechanisms of embryonic development and cell differentiation in normal and pathological conditions; genetic human diseases; circadian biological clocks. The studies employ different in vitro and in vivo systems, including Drosophila, zebrafish and mouse. Transcriptomic and genomic analyses of both model and non model species, ranging from crop plants to humans are also performed.
