Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

describe the processes relating to DNA and chromosome structure, replication and expression of genetic material

explain mechanisms of DNA inheritance, recombination, and DNA repair

explain and relate key principles of molecular biology to relevant methods of identification to detect genetic variation and/or genetic diseases

develop analytical and laboratory skills in molecular genetics
