This subject is taken together with BCMB40002. Students undertaking these units must complete a common coursework module, ‘Experimental Design and Statistics’ and select two additional thematic modules (from a selection of three modules) that cover advanced techniques in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology modules.
The ‘Experimental Design and Statistics’ module will cover aspects of experimental design, ethics and biostatistical methods used in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
The thematic modules will cover new developments in the genome sciences, structural biology, bioinformatics and molecular cell biology and comprise advanced lectures as well as library work.
Intended learning outcomes
