DBS is also associate Department in the teaching and training activities of other Bachelor programmes in:

• Biotecnologia (taught in Italian) in particular curriculum Biologico-industriale (from 2020-2021 renamed Molecolare e bioinformatico) - visit the websites

• Natural Sciences (taught in Italian) - visit the websites

MASTER programmes (2 yrs) in:

• Biodiversità ed evoluzione biologica (taught in Italian) - visit the websites

• Biologia applicata alla ricerca biomedica (taught in Italian) - visit the websites

• Biologia applicata alle scienze della nutrizione (taught in Italian) - visit the websites 

• Bioinformatics for Computational Genomics, a joint degree with the School of Industrial and Information Engineering of the Politecnico of Milan (taught in English) - visit the websites
