Summary

 

Course/Module

Organiser, Life Sciences Degrees (DUGS). (Undergraduate)

Organiser, Macromolecular Structure and Function 1 (Biochemistry, 2nd Yr). (Undergraduate)

Fundamentals of Molecular Biochemistry - LS2-MSF1

Aims

The aim is to provide an understanding by second year undergraduates of the relationship 
between macromolecular structure and function in sufficient detail to place this knowledge in the 
context of earlier courses in biochemistry and to provide the foundation for the treatment of more 
advanced topics in the final year. 
In particular the course will give the students insight into the theory and practice of how protein 
samples can be expressed, purified and engineered for structural and functional analysis. This 
will include insight into how bioinformatics can inform sample preparation and experimental 
design, how detailed structural information is obtained and how this can be used to facilitate 
investigation of function at the molecular level.

Science Communication - LS3-SCICOMM

Aims

  • To gain an overview of traditional, modern and emerging methods of communication and to understand how these are used to disseminate scientific content.
  • To explore how to choose the best medium through which to communicate science with different audiences.
  • To provide practical experience of several media and to teach basic technical skills in their use.
  • To provide an outlet for student creativity and imagination.
