3. CONTENT DESCRIPTION

Lectures

  1. Vector-borne zoonotic diseases: Introduction. 2. Intermediate hosts. 3. Pathogenic organisms with vector transmission: ecological implications. 4. Infectious models that implicate vector transmission. 5. Emerging infectious diseases and vectors. 6. Molecular basis of parasite-host relationship. 7. Infectious diseases due to virus. 8. Viral structure and expression and replication mechanisms. 9. Molecular interaction between virus and host cell. 10. Immune system subversion strategies and host defenses. 11. Pathogenesis and epidemiology with special reference of emerging virus. 12. Viral vectors. 13. Antiviral therapy. 14. Vaccines. 15. Genetic analysis of resistance to viral infections.

 

Practical program

  1. Sampling of vector of infectious diseases. 2. Molecular detection of pathogen agents (DNA/RNA extraction, PCR/RTPCR amplification, sequencing, etc.). 3. Viral protein and antigens analysis: immunoenzimatic test, immunofluorescence, western blot. 4. Genomic analysis: molecular hybridization in situ.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The course is structured in lectures concerning molecular biology of parasitic and viral diseases and practical sessions that involucrate the use molecular biology techniques in detection and characterization of such kind of organisms.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

Attendance at 90% of seminars is required.

We evaluate the participation in class discussion; knowledge on molecular virology and parasitology topics and its applications, and quality and completion of one two presentation on different subjects.
