BM1000 - Introductory Biochemistry and Microbiology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
Introduction to the foundational principles of biochemistry including molecular aspects
of cell structure and function, the major molecular components of living systems,
their synthesis and interconversion. This is addressed principally from a mammalian
perspective. Introduction to the microbial world including highlights in the structure
of cells and their functioning which have significant implications for biotechnology,
disease processes and the control of organisms. Mechanisms of resistance to infectious
diseases in animals and plants.
- 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.
