Module code


Semester 1

The aim of this Module is to introduce specific topics within the area of molecular structure and interactions analysis that will underpin the more specialised areas which students will encounter in Semester 2 of Level 3 and in Level 4. The module also aims to introduce students to the study of interactions that underpin biological events or early-stage drug discovery and strengthen students’ skills in scientific writing, critical analysis of scientific literature and in self-directed learning.

Topics covered in the module are High-throughput DNA sequencing and genome annotation, Secondary structure, disorder, post-translational modification, cloning, single crystal X-ray diffraction methods, Use of bioinformatics resources and databases, Scientific paper analysis.
