With this function you can construct your weekly calendar of lessons, which is customized on the basis of the courses that you intend to follow. Warning: the personal schedule does not replace the presentation of the study plan! It's an informal tool that can help you better manage the organization of class attendance before the study plan presentation. After the study plan presentation we recommend you to use the Lecture timetable service in your Online Services.
To create your customized schedule follow these instructions:
Click on the "Enable" link to proceed. You will be asked your surname and first name in order to determine your alphabetic grouping.
To add or remove courses from your personal schedule, use the small icons which are found next to the courses:
addition of the course
removal of the course
selection of the section of the Laboratory of Architecture (Note: the effective area in which the teaching will be carried out will be determined after the presentation of the Study Plans)
The sidebar on the left displays the number of lessons included in schedule. There are also these commands:
View the schedule: allows the viewing of the weekly synoptic schedule
Delete the schedule: cancels the selections made
When you have finished the entry, you can print the calendar you have made.

BIOMOLECULAR MODELLING LABORATORY
Credits (CFU / ECTS)
Molecular simulations are the theoretician's tools to understanding the fundamentals behind many physical and chemical phenomena. This course is designed to introduce the student to the theory and methodology behind these tools, and to expose the student to the power of molecular level simulations and modeling through practical applications. The aim of the course is to familiarize students with modern methods of biomolecular modelling. Both theoretical and computational activities will be developed. From the practical side the theoretical aspects will be used to study proteins, lipids, and saccharides and to address practical issues such as diffusion phenomena, determination of nanoscale mechanical properties, drug design, etc.). The main aspects covered in this course are: base concepts of molecular modelling approach; molecular mechanics, definition, features, and force field definition and parametrization; optimization techniques; molecular dynamics; coarse grain approach for biomolecules. In the laboratory activity students will be divided in groups and for each group a different project will be assigned.
To complement the project activities and to stimulate active learning, the structuring skills of thinking and knowledge and the assessment among colleagues, each group of students is responsible for examining a specific topic that will be presented and discussed with other students in flipped/blended classroom modality.
Students must acquire specific competences according with the following Dublin Descriptors:
A: KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
Knowledge and ability to discuss and present the main theoretical aspects presented in the course. Knowledge of the structure/function correlation in proteins.
B: APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
Resolving problems and exercises in molecular modelling applying the correct mathematical models. Setting virtual experiments for characterization of proteins.
C: INDIPENDENCE IN JUDGEMENT
Critically analyzing the recent literature on molecular modeling and discussing results.
D: COMUNICATION SKILLS
Ability to present a paper of the most recent literature, the course is in english and students are encouraged to ask questions and discuss in English.
The exam method consists of an written exam in which the students have to answer questions based on the material/theory taught during the lectures.
The evaluation of the written part accounts for 2/3 of the final grade. 1/3 of the grade is based on the evaluation of the presentation given by each student in English on the project assigned during the course.
