Overview

The Master’s degree explores how to produce healthier and safer food following a cross-cutting, farm/field-to-fork approach. Theoretical lessons are mixed with practical training, offering hands-on experience in advanced DNA, RNA, and protein analysis together with lab sessions in bioinformatics. Focused on the application of innovative biotechnological methodologies in food production and safety, it is the ideal connection between the requests of consumers and producers in the agri- food sector and the research applied to production and food-safety.
