• BIO016 Molecular Biology and Biochemistry

    This module introduces the identification and role of essential macromolecules within a cell and their basic biochemical processes. Lectures and laboratory-based practicals will explore the core concepts of molecular biology and the practical application of molecular techniques. Lectures will cover the fundamental cellular chemistry that is necessary to understand the molecular nature of cells and the processes involved in maintaining life. Practicals will develop this learning to investigate specific molecular applications utilised in real-life situations, and also provide context to how and why gene regulation occurs.
