BC3401 - Medical Laboratory Science Biochemistry Honours
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)
Available to level 3 Medical Laboratory Science Honours students.
Following the elucidation of the complete genome of a number of different organisms
the study of the function and regulation of individual genes has taken on greater
significance. These lectures describe the diverse mechanisms of regulation in both
eukaryotes and prokaryotes and the techniques used to study them. The lectures also
describe how different cells differentiate and develop and introduces the molecular
and genetic bases of embryology, immunology and cancer. The subject also includes
a literature review and the presentation of a research proposal.
- to understand methods for studying gene structure and function and bioinformatics;
- to understand the cellular and molecular bases of the immune response;
- to understand the diversity of genetic regulatory mechanisms;
- to understand the molecular bases of animal development;
- to understand the molecular biology of cancer;
- to understand transgenic animals;
- undertake a critical literature review;
- undertake a research project proposal development.
