  • Overview

    Cell and Molecular Biology equips you with a comprehensive understanding of the molecular structure and function of the cell. This unit introduces the basic principles and concepts of cell structure, function, specialisation, maintenance and replication, and introduces you to fundamental molecular mechanisms important to the organisation of the cell. You will be shown how macromolecular interactions are crucial to information flow and heredity. You are taught the relationships between chromosomes, genes and cellular function and ultimately how these may determine an organism's phenotype.

    Learning Outcomes
    On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
    Demonstrate an introductory understanding and be able to describe the structure and function of human cells and the important biomolecules that constitute cells.
    Explain the dynamic nature of the molecular mechanisms that operate within and control the cell.
    Understand the connections between cell structure and function, and solve problems in cell and molecular biology.
    Demonstrate basic practical skills relating to scientific experimentation and investigation in cell and molecular biology.
