Learning outcomes

The course will provide knowledge on the structure and functions of genomes for both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, including relevant organisms for biotransformations and the production of bio-compounds. The course will illustrate experimental methods for genome-sequencing analysis and annotation, including different metagenomic approaches necessary to characterize the composition of microorganisms involved in bioprocesses (natural or induced) and the genes underlying relevant functions.
