Human Genomics and Biomolecular Analysis
|Course code HUBS1202||Units 10||Level 1000||Faculty of Health and MedicineSchool of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy|
This course represents a blend between fundamental concepts and current issues in molecular medicine. The course focuses on the relationships between structure, function and analysis of Proteins and Nucleic Acids as applied to human disease and provides an introduction to modern concepts of Genomic structure, function and analysis arising from the Human Genome project.
Available in 2014
