- Major fermentation pathways from archea and eubacteria with economical interest : alcohol, lactate, butyrate and butanol-acetone, mixed acid and butanediol, propionate and succinate, acetate, methane.
- Biochemical characterization and yield analysis; Omics approaches
- Biosynthesis of several secondary metabolites
- Students are trained to measure the metabolic activity of a model organism through laboratory sessions.
Lectures will be given in a classroom. They consist of ex cathedra speeches and solved problems. The laboratory sessions aim at developing a scientific reasoning behaviour and improving classroom communication skills. Students are given a detailed evaluation of their performance.
The learning of basic concepts and vocabulary in English is stimulated.
The written examination consists of a series of questions that require concise or detailed answers and problems solving ability. The performance developed during the laboratory training sessions are evaluated independently, via the laboratory report.
Slides shown in classroom and laboratory notes will be available via moodle.
