This is a research-led module that explores recent advances in knowledge of diseases of aquatic organisms with particular reference to invertebrates (mainly crustaceans and molluscs) and fish of commercial significance
This module will provide knowledge of the structure of the human body, and how this adult anatomy develops during embryonic and foetal development. It will study human anatomy in a systems approach, focusing on the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, urogenital, and nervous systems. Anatomy is a fundamental science and supports many areas of biology. As such the topics chosen for this module are those most useful to other areas of biological science, and are often clinically significant. This module will use practical classes to study human tissue and will develop the skills needed to dissect and study cadavers. Support materials and laboratory space for self directed learning will be available, including plastic anatomical models, bones and skeletons, and computer based anatomical models.
