7th Course
Advanced Molecular Systems BioMedicine 
And Complex Pathological Phenotypes

Catania, Italy, June 18-20, 2014

Aula Magna of the Scuola Superiore di Catania

Aula Pero of Policlinico, Catania

Wassily Kandinsky: In the Blue - 1925

Characterisation of the molecular bases of wild-type and pathological phenotypes is one of the most important topics in contemporary Molecular BioMedicine. It will allow to understand complex biological processes, including the molecular determinants of cells and organisms identity. The seventh course of the Advanced School of BioMolecular and Complex Systems BioMedicine will focus on neoplastic and degenerative diseases: these pathological phenotypes will be exploited as experimental models to demonstrate how much Genome Projects have impacted on contemporary scientific research in BioMedicine and BioTechnology and have profoundly modified our vision of Nature.
