PROFESSIONAL DEGREE IN ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY

  • ECTS

    180 credits

  • Training structure

    IUT Montpellier-Sète

Presentation

The full sequencing of hundreds of genomes and the increase in high-throughput data are leading to new applications in human and animal health. This degree is a response to these technological revolutions and offers training appropriate to the new professions in biology.

The BAE professional degree offered at the IUT of Montpellier-Sète allows the student to follow a course entitled "Pharmacogenomics and Molecular Diagnosis".

The course offers practical training in high throughput sequencing methods thanks to the acquisition of specific equipment. Thanks to the integration of theoretical and practical courses, the tutored project and the work placement, graduates will develop their capacities for autonomy, responsibility and rigour, enabling them to quickly integrate the professional world. A steering and development committee made up of academics and professionals ensures that the content of the training is adapted to the expectations of the medical, veterinary and industrial world.

Objectives

The aim of this degree is to train students in the new methods resulting from "omics" technologies (structural and functional genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.). The originality of the pedagogical project is to ensure a double competence in genomics/molecular biology and in animal experimentation
(level II accreditation) while preserving the knowledge of reference technologies in the analysis of living organisms.

Know-how and skills

At the end of the training, the candidate will be able to :

- Know and master the techniques and equipment used in molecular biology and protein biochemistry.
- Apply animal experimentation procedures and
follow experiments according to the European regulation of
2013.
- Know how to implement an experimental protocol from its
conception to the critical analysis and validation of the results
- Know how to consult bibliographical resources (databases,
articles...).
- Analyse various types of documents in French and English (protocols, articles) and then summarise them.
- Organise personal work and know how to work autonomously
or as part of a team.
- Know how to communicate their results (oral presentation, poster, written report).
