Content

This practical-based unit provides students with fundamental skills in cellular and molecular biology which are essential for both research and commercial applications of Biotechnology. Students will be provided with the opportunity to individually and in groups undertake a variety of laboratory-based procedures. These include many sought after techniques in molecular biology involving DNA and RNA such as isolation, purification, amplification, restriction enzyme digestion, cloning, ligation, vector construction and agarose gel electrophoresis. In addition, students will also gain an understanding of the rapidly advancing field of Bioinformatics through computer-based seminars. Techniques required for protein analysis such as poly acrylamide gel electrophoresis, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) and immunofluorescence microscopy will also be form part of the practical program.   

Assessment

3 x practical class reports (20% each) 60%, examination 40%
