Teaching

  • PM-133C Geneteg Esblygiadol a Molecwlaidd

    Mae'r modiwl yn dechrau drwy ystyried agweddau ar eneteg a phynciau perthynol e.e. mitosis a meiosis, mwtadiad, genomau, ailgyfuno, trawsgrifiad, trosiad, strwythur protein a phriodweddau protein. Mae ail ran y modiwl yn cynnwys bioleg esblygiadol, detholiad naturiol ac amrywiad, esblygiad molecwlaidd, rhywogaethau a'u cread, dosbarthiad a ffylogenedd.

  • PM-238C Ystadegau Biolegol

    Mae¿r modiwl hwn yn cwmpasu nifer o egwyddorion dadansoddi data biolegol drwy ddefnyddio meddalwedd ystadegol.

  • PM-246C Datblygu Sgiliau Biocemeg II

    Nod y modiwl hwn yw datblygu'r sgiliau mae eu hangen ar fyfyrwyr biocemeg. Bydd myfyrwyr yn cwrdd â thiwtoriaid ac yn derbyn cyfres o aseiniadau at ddiben datblygu eu sgiliau mewn meysydd allweddol, gan gynnwys ysgrifennu traethodau, cyflwyno a dadansoddi papurau ymchwil.

  • PM-253C Technegau Bioleg Foleciwlaidd

    Bydd y modiwl yn darparu sylfaen ddamcaniaethol ac ymarferol gref ar gyfer ystod gynhwysfawr o dechnegau biofoleciwlaidd a ddefnyddir ar hyn o bryd mewn geneteg foleciwlaidd a biocemeg. Rhoir pwyslais penodol ar dechnoleg ailgyfuno DNA, dilyniannu cenhedlaeth nesaf, transgriptomeg, proteomeg a sbectrometreg màs.

  • PM-304 Biomolecular Research Project

    *

  • PM-304C Prosiect Ymchwil Biofoleciwlaidd

    Profiad gwaith mewn labordy ymchwil.

  • PM-315 Genetic Analysis III

    The module aims to develop the student¿s ability to critically analyse and synthesise advanced research topics in genetics and molecular biology, and their oral and written scientific presentation skills.

  • PM-334 Biochemistry Literature Review and Communication

    Students will acquire a detailed knowledge of one topical research area of key importance to their particular degree scheme.

  • PM-334C Adolygiad Llenyddiaeth Biocemeg a Chyfathrebu

    Bydd y myfyrwyr yn dysgu gwybodaeth fanwl o un maes ymchwil cyfamserol â phwysigrwydd allweddol i'w cynllun gradd penodol.
