Undergraduate Biochemistry 2015-2016

BC3503: THE MOLECULAR CONTROL OF CELL FUNCTION

30 credits

Level 3

Second Sub Session

  • to become knowledgeable about the fundamental roles played by selected proteins or groups of proteins in the working life of cells, tissues and organisms;
  • to experience first-hand some of the laboratory procedures that are used to acquire the information learned about in lectures. This will also serve the general function of increasing students’ level of experience in designing and performing laboratory work and in data interpretation; and
  • to gain experience in preparing and delivering the subject to an interested audience in order to enhance personal communication and presentation skills

BC4014: HONOURS BIOCHEMISTRY - OPTION 1

15 credits

Level 4

First Sub Session

  • ability to describe using examples the structure of membrane receptors; 
  • understand the various ways in which receptor proteins transmit information from the extra-cellular environment to their intracellular site of action;
  • describe how cross-talk between different signalling pathways can be achieved; 
  • understand how signalling pathways are structured and compartmentalised within the cell; 
  • understand the scientific methods used to study receptors and signalling pathways; 
  • the role of cell signalling in health and disease

BC4314: HONOURS BIOCHEMISTRY - OPTION 2

15 credits

Level 4

First Sub Session

  •  this course module presents an advanced in-depth description of studies on the biochemistry of selected human diseases; 
  • the lectures will present fundamental information on human diseases to understand the molecular basis of the disease along with models describing disease progression; 
  • based on this biochemical understanding of disease progression practical applications in healthcare will be discussed where appropriate; 
  • the course will prepare you with the abilities to understand the biochemical complexities of human disease.
