752-1021-00LFood EnzymologyW+3 KP2GL. Nyström, M. Erzinger
KurzbeschreibungThe course covers the fundamentals of food enzymology, application of endogenous and exogenous enzymes in food processing, as well as use of enzymes in analytics.
LernzielStudents can describe what enzymes are and can explain their use and functions in food and food products.
Students can argue why and how enzymes are used in food processing and analysis.
Students execute a research project independently and defend their findings during a presentation to peer students and an expert panel.
InhaltEnzymes in foods: the use of added enzymes in food processing, control and/or utilization of endogenous enzymes, production of enzyme preparations for food use, and chemical analysis of food components by enzymatic methods.

Course contains lectures and a practical group work.
SkriptThe lectures are supplemented with handouts.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesCourse prerequisites: Food Chemistry I/II and Food Analysis I/II (or equivalent)
752-4009-00LMolecular Biology of Foodborne PathogensW+3 KP2VM. Loessner, M. Schuppler
KurzbeschreibungThe course offers detailed information on selected foodborne pathogens and toxin producing organisms; the focus lies on relevant molecular biological aspects of pathogenicity and virulence, as well as on the occurrence and survival of these organisms in foods.
LernzielDetailed and current status of research and insights into the molecular basis of foodborne diseases, with focus on interactions of the microorganism or the toxins they produce with the human system. Understanding the relationship between specific types of food and the associated pathogens and microbial risks. Another focus lies on the currently available methods and techniques useful for the various purposes, i.e., detection, differentiation (typing), and antimicrobial agents.
InhaltMolecular biology of infectious foodborne pathogens (Listeria, Vibrio, E. coli, Campylobacter, etc) and toxin-producing organisms (Bacillus, Clostridium, Staphylococcus). How and under which conditions will toxins and virulence factors be produced, and how do they work? How is the interaction between the human host and the microbial pathogen? What are the roles of food and the environment ? What can be done to interfere with the potential risks? Which methods are best suited for what approach? Last, but not least, the role of bacteriophages in microbial pathogenicity will be highlighted, in addition to various applications of bacteriophage for both diagnostics and antimicrobial intervention.
SkriptElectronic copies of the presentation slides (PDF) and additional material will be made available for download to registered students.
LiteraturRecommendations will be given in the first lecture
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesLectures (2 hours) will be held as a single session of approximately 60+ minutes (10:15 until approx. 11:15 h), without break !
752-5103-00LFunctional Microorganisms in Foods Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen W+3 KP2GC. Lacroix, A. Geirnaert, A. Greppi
KurzbeschreibungThis integration course will discuss new applications of functional microbes in food processing and products and in the human gut. Selected topics will be used to illustrate the rapid development but also limits of basic knowledge for applications of functional microorganisms to produce food with high quality and safety, and for health benefits for consumers.
LernzielTo understand the principles, roles and mechanisms of microorganisms with metabolic activities of high potential for application in traditional and functional foods, and for benefiting human health. This course will integrate basic knowledge in food microbiology, physiology, biochemistry, and technology.
InhaltThis course will address selected and current topics targeting functional characterization and new applications of microorganisms in food and for promoting human health. Specialists from the Laboratory of Food Biotechnology, as well as invited speakers from the industry will contribute to different topics:

- Probiotics and Prebiotics: human gut microbiota, functional foods and microbial-based products for gastrointestinal health and functionality, diet-microbiota interactions, molecular mechanisms; challenges for the production and addition of probiotics to foods.

- Protective Cultures and Antimicrobial Metabolites for enhancing food quality and safety: antifungal cultures; bacteriocin-producing cultures (bacteriocins); long path from research to industry in the development of new protective cultures.

- Legal and protection issues related to functional foods

- Industrial biotechnology of flavor and taste development

- Safety of food cultures and probiotics

Students will be required to complete a Project on a selected current topic relating to functional culture development, application and claims. Project will involve information research and critical assessment to develop an opinion, developed in an oral presentation.
SkriptCopy of the power point slides from lectures will be provided.
LiteraturA list of topics for group projects will be supplied, with key references for each topic.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis lecture requires strong basics in microbiology.
752-1301-00LSpecial Topics in ToxicologyW2 KP2GS. J. Sturla, K. Hecht
KurzbeschreibungJournal-club style course involving student presentations and active discussion and critique of recent publications and modern experimental strategies. The focus is on chemical, biochemical, and nutritional aspects of selected topics in Toxicology, with a new group of topics addressed each semester
Lernziel-to stimulate student interest and provide advanced knowledge of
current research in Toxicology and its related sciences
- to develop skills in critical evaluation of scientific literature, oral presentation and questioning
- to understand modern experimental techniques and research approaches relevant in toxicology
InhaltThe journal-club style course involves student presentations and active discussion of recent publications. The primary focus is on chemical, biochemical, and nutritional aspects of selected current topics in Toxicology. Participants are masters or PhD students in Food Sciences and related disciplines (i.e. Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, etc.).
LiteraturA selection of approximately 20 papers from recent primary scientific literature.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThe course is open to Masters or PhD level students.

For Masters level participants, a strict prerequisite is (a) previously taken and passed "Introduction to Toxicology" (752-1300) and/or (b) previous courses supporting equivalent knowledge plus permission from the instructor. Please contact the instructor before the start of the class, explaining the basis of your previous knowledge other than the Introduction course, to request special permission.

If you would like to take "Special Topics in Toxicology", do not register at the same time for "Advanced Topics in Toxicology". It is only possible to take one, and it is only possible to take the advanced level after completing this course.
