Organelles and Cells

This module aims to equip you with the conceptual, theoretical and computational skills required for the analysis and engineering of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organelles and cells. Starting with understanding the principles of light, you’ll also learn how life harnesses electrical forces to communicate and compute information. As the module progresses, you’ll explore chemical and synthetic biology, principally examining biology as macromolecular chemistry and how we can use chemistry to make biological probes. We conclude this module with cell division and underpin the principles of just how does one cell become two?
