|Subject Outline:||May 2010 [ Standard ]|
In this subject, students will learn about the regulation of gene expression, the human genome and the techniques that are available to study genes. Students will be introduced to the tools of bioinformatics and use these to analyse human genes and genetic diseases. Advanced studies in the molecular biological techniques used to investigate patterns of gene expression will be an important part of this subject. This subject will interest students who wish to undertake a career in a research or a biomedical laboratory setting.
No prior learning required
Students will gain knowledge of the principles of molecular biology as applied particularly to research and diagnostic genomics. In addition, that knowledge will be exemplified and applied through laboratory-based practicals demonstrating some of the most common techniques used within this discipline.
