The biodiversity of the sea is a heritage to be preserved, but it is also an important source of inspiration for modern biotechnologies and nanotechnologies. New drugs, new materials and new processes can derive from the targeted application of knowledge deriving from the study of marine biodiversity.
AIMS AND CONTENT
The main applications in biotechnology and nanotechnology deriving from the biomolecular and structural study of marine organisms.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
Acquisition of knowledge and skills related to the main approaches of modern biotechnologies applied to marine organisms. Examples taken from the marine ecosystem as a model for obtaining biotechnological and nanotechnological products or processes.
Basic knowledge of biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology
seminars and lessons, educational visits and a laboratory experience
