BC3202 - Special Topics in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
This subject covers a broad range of state-of-the art laboratory techniques used in
biochemistry and molecular biology research laboratories through both lectures and
laboratory experience. Lectures will cover the use of modern techniques used in biochemistry
and molecular biology and experimental design. Students will be required to complete
a 96 hours placement (three weeks full time during the mid-year break).
- ensure students are able to design, conduct and analyse the results of experiments;
- ensure students are able to reproduce experiments described in a scientific publication;
- ensure students are able to use the web and databases for the efficient analysis of
nucleotide and protein sequences;
- ensure students have first hand experience and develop skills in modern techniques
used in biochemistry and molecular biology laboratories;
- proficient use of standard statistics and graphics software packages.
