Synopsis

This course is for students who have completed a basic course in cell and molecular biology. Drawing on this knowledge base, the course addresses the nature of gene organisation, replication and expression in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems. Potential applications of recombinant DNA technology and bioinformatics in biotechnology and medicine are also discussed. This course also examines advanced aspects of cell structure, transport and membrane function. Signalling processes that regulate cell function both in healthy and diseased states are also investigated, together with the regulation of the cell cycle, programmed cell death and tumorigenesis. Students will gain experience in the development and application of conventional, in silico and molecular technologies for organizing, analysing and interpreting complex cellular function and signalling data.
