Description of module content:

In this module you will learn about the key concepts of genetics and gain experience of appropriate laboratory techniques. You will study prokaryotic and eukaryotic mechanisms and processes such as DNA replication, gene expression, transcription, translation, mutations and repair. We will look at the regulation of these processes and investigate what happens when they fail. The module includes genome evolution and horizontal gene transfer. You will also learn how to present, analyse and interpret data, and write a lab book according to GLP standards.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Explain the key concepts of genetics.
LO2: Discuss how key concepts are regulated and what happens when regulation fails.
LO3: Discuss the evolution of the genome, including horizontal gene transfer.
LO4: Carry out lab experiments involving transfer, manipulation and analysis of DNA.
