Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The aim of this module is to enable students to make the transition from textbook driven learning to the cutting edge represented in the primary literature. This is done in a rapidly moving, highly topical subject, which is a key to genome analysis of animals and plants. The subject is notable for integrating all levels of biological organisation.

Principal learning outcomes

The module aims to impart knowledge of the way that genetic information is decoded in the development of animals. This rapidly growing area of understanding is shedding light on many areas of biology, such as cell biology, disease, evolution and neurobiology.
