Module overview

This module is designed for Biomedical Engineering students on the Artificial Intelligence and Digital Health pathways.

In this module, you will learn about the different types of macromolecules found in cells, with a particular emphasis on DNA and proteins. The module will study the role of nucleic acids and genetic information in defining protein structure, how protein structure influences function, and the principles by which DNA and protein can be manipulated by molecular biology.

This module will also introduce the methods used to collect, present, and analyse data in the life sciences and to estimate models from data, with focused application to introductory level statistical genetics. These topics will provide a grounding in the principles underlying modern biological data science.

Linked modules

This module is co-taught with BIOM1008 and is just a split out of the two pathways for the original BIOM1002.
