The student will acquire an integrated view of the logic by which the information encoded in genomes direct the organisms’ functions. Such knowledge is key to give biological sense to the data that will be analyzed on other subjects. The student will also acquired skills on the building of DNA libraries for their posterior high-throughput sequencing and the interpretation of genomic data on a biological an biomedical level.
