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-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-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.
