You will use your knowledge and skills to study key aspects of:
DNA / RNA synthesis
protein structure and function
antibody and DNA technology
the molecular genetics of human diseases.
This course provides an in-depth approach to Biochemistry and the molecular aspects of cells. You will examine the key aspects of macromolecule and cell structure and function, and inter-relationships in both practical and theoretical contexts.
Why choose this course?
You will have hands-on experience in fundamental techniques including:
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
molecular cloning (DNA modification)
kinetic models as well as bioinformatics as applied to the analysis of gene databases and protein structure-function relationships.
3rd in the UK for Bioscience students on year-long work placements (HESA 2017/18). You will also have the option to undertake a 12-month paid work placement in your third year. Our Placement Office and the School's excellent links with companies, including GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, facilitate this.
