Experimental Systems Biology (MRes Systems and Synthetic Biology)
Role - Lecturer
Lectures will cover signalling and gene regulatory pathways and programmes in bacteria, mammalian cells and plants. Further topics of the lectures will include structural and functional genomics, and experimental techniques. Molecular medicine and genetic aspects of health and disease will be mentioned as well.
Genetics (BSc Biology, Year 2)
Role - Tutor
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.
