Plan Summary

Faculty: Faculty of Science
School: School of Biochem & Molec Gen
Program: 5345 - Biochem & Molecular Genetics
Graduate Diploma (Specialisation)

Plan Outline

This is for a plan in the Graduate Diploma in Biochemistry (Research).

This 48 UOC program is tailored according to the background and requirements of the individual student. In most cases, it includes advanced formal undergraduate training, including lectures in general and medical biochemistry and training in the use of modern biochemical techniques e.g. scintillation counting, gas liquid chromatography (GLC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), molecular biology, spectrophotometry, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and animal and plant cell culture. The student also carries out a research project (or projects) in the laboratory of an academic member of staff and write a report on the project.

The School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences has a wide range of interests and can offer research projects in most areas of biochemistry. Specialised areas of research are molecular biology, marine biochemistry, parasite biochemistry and plant biochemistry.

Please contact the school regarding available projects and courses. A direct link is provided above.
