Summary

 

Biodiversity Genomics - LS3-BDG

Role

Course Leader

Cell and Developmental Biology - LS2-CDB

Aims

The course aims to provide an integrated understanding of the regulation of development in animals and plants. Studies will focus especially on the underlying cellular and molecular biology processes. Particular attention will be given to the initiation and regulation of recognisable developmental features of animal and plant body plans during embryogenesis and in later life. Selected case studies will consider recent research breakthroughs, the role of the environment in development and how organisms interact to modify each others’ development. 

Role

Lecturer

Genetics - LS2-GEN

Aims

Genetics is a compulsory course. It builds upon (and assumes knowledge of) the First Year Cell Biology and Genetics lectures on transmission genetics, chromosome inheritance, gene linkage & chromosome mapping to provide an intermediate level course that considers a range of topics in a very expansive field of study. The aims of the course are (a) to provide an overview of selected topics in genetics and as such provide a link to a number of third year courses; (b) to stress the increasingly important applied use of genetics in the 21st Century; and to (c) to provide instruction in standard genetics/molecular biology techniques. The remaining Statistical Modelling Course practicals will continue during the Genetics course with the aim of enabling students to analyse a dataset collected during the mutation practical P2 to include in their write-up.
