THE COURSE PROVIDES THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF THE BIOLOGY OF THE DIFFERENT LIVING GROUPS (BACTERIA, ALGAE, YEASTS AND OTHER FUNGI, LICHENS, HIGHER PLANTS, ANIMALS) THAT ARE OF IMPORTANCE IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY, TRACING MORPHOLOGICAL, STRUCTURAL, METABOLIC, EVOLUTIONARY AND ECOLOGICAL. IN EXERCISES WILL BE SHOWN THE PECULIAR ELEMENTS AND CHARACTERIZE THE VARIOUS TAXA.

Programme

SYLLABUS - Module 2 of Biology 1.
The animal cell and tissues. Presentation of the main animal taxa in their phylogenetic relationships and in an evolutionary perspective, from unicellularity (ancestral protists) to the evolution of multicellularity (Metazoa) and its diversified organization during evolution also with hints on embryonic development (diblastic and triblastic organisms ; Protostomes and Deuterostomes; types of symmetry; Acelomates, Pseudocelomates and Coelomates organisms). The animal groups (phyla) are presented with their morpho-functional adaptations and their ecology, with attention to use in human nutrition and possible problems related to the food sector (for example food parasites). Main animal groups treated: Parazoa (Porifera); among Eumetazoa the Radiata (eg., Cnidarians and Ctenophores) and the Bilateria (eg., Platyhelminthes, Nematodes, Mollusks, Arthropods, Annelids, Bryozoans, Echinoderms, Chordates)

Hours: every day of the week from 9 to 10 am by appointment by email (monica.carosi@uniroma3.it)

Type of delivery of the course

This is a lecture-based course held by the instructor and includes practice exercises. In the event of an extension of the health emergency from COVID-19, all provisions that regulate the methods of carrying out remote teaching activities will be implemented. In particular, as already experienced in the second semester of the academic year 2019-2020, the distance teaching methods will be applied on the TEAMS platform.

Type of evaluation

The course includes a written exam and an oral exam. The written exam consists of 30 questions, open or multiple choice, both on general topics and more specifically in the botanical and zoological fields. Correct answers are scored 1 point, while partially correct one are scored as fractions of a point. The student who scores at least 18/30 will pass the written exam and will have access to the oral exam. The oral exam consists of questions about the topics of the program and the grade will be averaged with the result of the written exam. During the course some "assignments" on the topics of the lessons are foreseen in order to stimulate students to study the program regularly and stimulate their critical sense. The completion of the "assignments" involves adding 1/30 to the mean score achieved with written and oral exams. IN THE COVID-19 EMERGENCY, ALL PROVISIONS REGULATING THE STUDENT ASSESSMENT METHODS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED. In particular, for the period in which the university will limit social aggregation in the classrooms, the exams will consist EXCLUSIVELY of an oral test that can be carried out in a mixed mode: either face-to-face or online, through the Teams platform, for those who apply.
