The aim of this module is to provide specialist knowledge and understanding of frontier topics in bioinformatics. You will gain an understanding of key technologies and applications in modern biological research and familiarity with state of the art processes.
This module will consist of two study topics delivered by specialists in specific fields and a personal study topic. Indicative content are Genome Assembly, Proteomics, Structural Analysis and Systems Modelling though these may change with research areas and staff availability. Assessment is through preparing literature reviews (precis) of the two assigned topics and a larger mini-review of your chosen topic.
