Basic course in biochemistry as well as cellular and molecular biology for non-life science students enrolling at the Master or PhD thesis level from various engineering disciplines. It reviews essential notions necessary for a training in biology-related engineering fields.
The course introduces the fundamental principles observable in all living organisms. As much as possible, emphasis is put on the contributions from Informatics to the development of Life Sciences.
This course is aimed to familiarize students with the 3D organization of a eukaryotic cell, its compartmentalization, how cellular compartments communicate together and how a cell communicates with its environment. The related molecular mechanisms will be discussed.
This class is a specific preparation for the admission exam to join the third year of the Medical School. It covers the macroscopic (anatomy), microscopic (histology) morphology of head, neck and trunk with a medical perspective.
Morphology II allows students who have taken Morphology I to deepen their knowledge by studying the radiological anatomy and the developmental processes. Frequent malformations are explained in relation to embryology. Selected topics required for the admission to the Medical School are covered.
This course consists of an introduction to biology and more particularly to biology as a multidisciplinary field, emphasizing natural examples of materials engineering. It should therefore allow engineering students to find inspiration from biology in future materials research problems.
