SP2174 The Cell

Module Description

SP2174 The CellĀ offers an insight into the working mechanisms of cells and provides an introduction into plasmid-based bioengineering. Students will gain hands-on exposure to constructing biological circuits in the laboratory along with associated molecular cloning techniques. The highlight of the module is an independently-designed and executed group experiment. Students are tasked with identifying gaps in existing research and designing an experimental procedure to address the issue, before constructing the required experimental setup. The project immerses students in the entire process of scientific research from experimental design to drawing conclusions, offering a glimpse into the world of practical research.
