Summary

The labels "biosensor"€ and "eBiochip" have been employed to refer to the most diverse systems and in several fields of application. The course is meant not only to provide means to dig into this sea but also a thoughtful understanding of the detection principles and a design perspective.

Important concepts to start the course

The course is hystorically addressed to students with many sorts of background.

When needed, the premises for the understanding of certain topics are outlined and discussed during the course.

In particular, the course would require some familiarity with the fundamentals of molecular biology and a solid physics background. 

Instrumental prerequisites that span from electrode/solution interfaces, to binding kinetics, to electrical characterization of biological elements, to microelectronic proccesses are recalled and integrated in the course material.

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

  • Access and evaluate appropriate sources of information.
  • Demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools
