Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student know how to:

  • plan and experimentally execute a project in molecular biology
  • plan and experimentally execute a project in biological measurement
  • Understand and evaluate experimentally determined data through critical thinking of scientific literature and available experimental data The student has also comprehensive practical experience of methods in molecular biology as well as in biological measurements

  • Course content

    The experimental part are based on earlier knowledge from courses in Biochemistry. The main part of this course is experimental and will give insights in modern experimental techniques in molecular biology and biological measurements.

    Teaching and working methods

    The course is divided in two separate projects in Biological measurements (UPG3) and molecular biology (UPG2). Both projects are laboratory intensive and are presented as written reports for each project.
