The MSc in Biotechnologies for Food Science explores how to produce healthier and safer food following a cross-cutting, farm/field-to-fork approach.
The MSc in Biotechnologies for Food Science explores how to produce healthier and safer food following a cross-cutting, farm/field-to-fork approach. Focused on the application of advanced biotechnological methodologies in food production and safety, it is the ideal trait-d’union between the requests of consumers and producers in the agro-food sector and the research applied to production and food-safety.
Thus, the course has a strong component on cutting-edge disciplines like genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, metabolomics, and nanotechnologies, all in the context of animal and crop production as well as food quality and safety. Theoretical lessons are mixed with a relatively high number of practical training, including the ECTS dedicated to the thesis work (25), covering the whole second semester of the second year....
