Semester 1

The aim of this module is to introduce you to specific topics within the area of Gene Regulation and Expression that will underpin the more specialised areas, which you will encounter in Semester 2 of Level 3 and in Level 4. This module will focus on the principles underlying the following fundamental processes: transcription, RNA splicing, RNA modification, chromatin and epigenetics, DNA replication, chromosome segregation, DNA recombination and repair. You will come away with a fundamental understanding of these processes in molecular biology in relation to cellular function and will be able to apply this knowledge to explain mechanisms in biomedically relevant disease states.
