The study of the complexity of forms and functions of the biological world, including molecular aspects, evolutionary dynamics and organism-environment interactions, are at the heart of this course, which will allow you to acquire an integrated view of biological processes. You will gain methodological, technical and instrumental knowledge and skills on the different levels of the organisation of the living beings, and learn the methods of investigation of biology, adding practical activities to the theory. You may find employment in different contexts, for example dealing with quality control in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and dietetic food companies or as an expert technician in research entities, industries biology-related sectors, ecological and aquaculture systems, ecological and agro-food companies, parks, natural reserves and museums.
