Module overview

This module is designed for Biomedical Engineering students on the Electronics and Mechatronics for 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 physical concepts of fields and waves plus the behaviour of materials in electric and magnetic fields, to provide a solid foundation in the physics underpinning biomedical technology.

Linked modules

This module is co-taught with BIOM1007 and is just a split out of the two pathways for the original BIOM1002.
