|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
Medicine is evolving rapidly into a genomic medicine discipline after successful sequencing of human genomes. As a result, traditional diagnostics, therapeutics and prognostics in patients will soon become outdated.
Recent advances in genomics have led to the identification of new genes responsible for hereditary and inflammatory diseases, generating a huge impact in our understanding the genetic basis of structural and functional defects and pathological mechanisms underlying ophthalmological diseases.
The course provides students with theoretical and practical knowledge of the molecular mechanisms responsible for hereditary pathologies in ophthalmology and on biomolecular techniques for their diagnosis and desirable treatment.
The teaching includes 8 hours of lectures.
Cellular structure and physiology
DNA structure and biochemical characteristics
The human genome
Genes and variants
Genetic alterations and mutations
Molecular biology techniques applied to the diagnosis and treatment of genetic diseases
Gene Therapy: most common vectors and techniques
Hereditary diseases in ophthalmology
Reading items will be suggested or delivered by the teacher

Registration for the exam is required: https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/
The exam interview will focus on the topics covered in class: the student will have to demonstrate that he has understood the basic of biomolecular mechanisms and be able to expose what he has learned with awareness
