Experimental Molecular and Cell Biology

This module introduces students to the theory and practical applications of techniques relevant to molecular and cell biology. The module emphasizes problem-solving exercises in the application of commonly used recombinant DNA techniques, including gel electrophoresis of DNA, RNA isolation and analysis, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), construction of recombinant DNA molecules, DNA sequencing and analysis, and real-time PCR. The objective for the students is to learn HOW to perform the experiments, and to understand WHY these experiments have to be carried out in a certain way.
