This subject contains a 7 day Compulsory Residential School.
This subject is a micro-session practical subject. The residential school will provide students with practical skills in molecular biological separation techniques by completing practicals such as (but not limited to) gel electrophoresis, DNA hybridisation, PCR, and various assays. Students will learn how to interpret molecular biological and biochemistry data. Individual, group and class exercises will be carried out to allow students to learn to work as individuals as well as to develop team work skills. The laboratory skills in this practical will be taught with a contextualised approach to medical science.
