15 credits

Level 5

First Sub Session

A course describing the principles behind how microorganisms respond to environmental stresses

A range of microbial stress responses are detailed using a range of model systems, pathogens and non-pathogens, showing how gene expression is regulated by stress.

Contains an extended research practical; you carry out computer-based modelling to understand how cells responds to starvation stress, and write up in research paper format. 

We teach with reference to the scientific literature allowing you to place your learning in the context of the latest published research.
