This subject is focussed on the use of molecular techniques to study gene and protein functions in a range of organisms. It aims to provide students with an advanced understanding of the strategies and techniques used in molecular biology of relevance both to the biotechnology industry and to advanced molecular biology research. Topics will be drawn from the current literature and ongoing research in molecular biology.
Upon completion of this subject students should have:
Two 600-word reports due during mid and late semester, respectively (10% each); two 1000-word reports due during mid and late semester, respectively (25%) each; one oral presentation during semester (non-assessed hurdle requirement); a two-hour end-of-semester examination (30%).
