TV1102 - Cell Biology and Biochemistry for Veterinary Science and Agriculture
|Student Contribution Band:
Available only to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Tropical Agricultural Science
and Bachelor of Veterinary Science.
Introduction to the basic principles of cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology
and immunology. The biochemical processes involved in agricultural plant productivity
and animal metabolism are covered from an energy perspective. The importance of microbes
in biotechnology and disease is highlighted in addition to the importance of mechanisms
of resistance to infectious diseases in both agriculturally-important plants and domesticated
- Upon successful completion of this subject, students will be able to: Demonstrate
the acquisition of fundamental scientific knowledge of; cellular structures, cellular
reproduction and genetics; cellular metabolism, transport and motility; microbial
function and communication; innate and adaptive immune system function and its role
in infection and disease;
- Further develop and demonstrate basic laboratory skills in the manipulation and analysis
of cells and biomolecules;
- Collect, record, interpret and draw conclusions from scientific data;
- Generate data and statistics from experimental procedures. Analyse scientific evidence
and have the ability to draw logical conclusions;
- Work both independently and cooperatively within an undergraduate university environment.
