Course content

Designed to provide you with a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the molecular biology of micro-organisms.

You'll study the key concepts associated with molecular microbiology and use these when considering their role in health, disease and in the natural environment.

This course provides you with opportunities to study advanced principles of the metabolism and genetics of microbes, microbes involved in clinical health and the natural environment and infectious diseases. Further studies specialise in modern genomics and infectious disease diagnosis. Practical work forms a large proportion of your learning to ensure that you have extensive skills for employment or research and there is an emphasis on developing knowledge and understanding such that you acquire the skills, qualities and attributes expected by employers or for postgraduate research.
