Unit Snapshot

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:

understand how genes, the molecules they produce and the molecules that regulate them can be analysed using computing resources

source reliable bioinformatics literature and on-line databases to critically appraise DNA, RNA, and protein sequence information

apply knowledge of gene structure-function relationships and incorporate statistical methodology to set problems and case studies

critically analyse the concepts and approaches to characterising genes and genomes

critically analyse the impact of bioinformatics and emerging technologies on current and future biological research
