The research project option within the Master of Computational Biology will be available for students who have demonstrated a strong aptitude for research to perform a short research project under the direction of a supervisor. The research project will build on the skills obtained in the course. Students will determine the structure they follow in consultation with the project coordinator.
Intended learning outcomes
At the completion of this subject students will have:
- The ability to apply existing or new techniques to perform research under general direction
- The ability to produce a research report containing results that could lead to publication
- The ability to present results in oral form at a career-ready level
- A sound preparation for future research in Computational Biology
Upon completion of this subject, students should gain the following generic skills:
- problem-solving skills including the ability to engage with unfamiliar problems, identify relevant solution strategies and conduct research;
- analytical skills through the ability to construct and express logical arguments and to work in abstract or general terms to increase the clarity and efficiency of analysis;
- presentation skills, both written and oral; and
- time management skills: the ability to meet regular deadlines while balancing competing commitments.
