Teaching and learning
In the first part of the course between September and December, you will study modern concepts of molecular genetics. Hands-on lab experiments and small group teaching sessions which will introduce you to a variety of modern molecular genetics techniques and research strategies.
Once you have learned how molecular genetics data are generated you will progress onto the extended research project in an area of your choice and the project that will be designed by the supervisor but will provide flexibility for you to explore your interests.
The taught modules are assessed by in-module assessments and by exams. Your research project will involve generating and analysing your research data and is assessed on your independence, initiative and understanding whilst performing the project, as well as submission of a final dissertation and project presentation.
