With this second cycle course in Comparative and Technological Molecular Genetics, we intend to transmit essential knowledge related to recent advances in the area of comparison of genomes and DNA manipulation technologies, both in animal and plant organisms. In addition, it is intended an increasing awareness of the ethical issues inherent in these new technologies. The course will use curricular units that will operate in modular regime with great practical component, namely laboratory classes. In the 3rd semester students may choose to specialize in Molecular Comparative Genetics and Plant or Animal Technology depending on the dissertation to be developed.
The Master's Degree in Comparative and Technological Molecular Genetics aims at the training of Senior Technicians and Researchers with a solid and up-to-date and specific scientific, theoretical and practical training in the scientific areas of Genetics and Biotechnology, with the prospect that these masters will continue their future specialization in PhD in "Comparative and Technological Molecular Genetics", among others....

The Marine Biology Master aims to promote multidisciplinary advanced training in Marine Biology, providing skills for the analysis and understanding of marine biodiversity, from genes to ecosystems, their functioning, and diversity. The program includes a strong component of participation in practical research, including laboratory and fieldwork in different marine ecosystems. Applications include marine biological resource exploitation, conservation, and biotechnology. Courses are taught in English.
IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science :
the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator),
the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal,
the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece,
the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil.
Why clay minerals?
Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest.
In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as an important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials....
