NB: Attendance at practical sessions is compulsory and absences will be recorded as part of the general work and attendance system. Otherwise, students will get a mark of 0 and further penalties for absences will be applied see manual.
Failure of this unit will result in a resit written examination and loss of compensation for other failed first year examinations. Failure to do so will result in a resit practical examination and loss of compensation for other failed first year examinations. For each data handling module, students have practice questions for which they gain feedback.
Experiments in molecular genetics
For the online pre-lab activities and eLearning assignment, the feedback is given in the form of a mark and students have two further attempts to improve their marks based on the feedback. During the practical sessions, there will be many opportunities for students to get feedback from staff or demonstrators on technical performance and conceptual understanding of the practical tested through the questions and exercises posed in the practical manual.
This feedback along with the numerous post lab practice problems and their model answers including a mock paper , a Biomaths clinic, and the data handling skills modules should support the preparation for the written examination. For the scientific poster, support will be provided through several resources and an online assignment as well as 1 or 2 tutorials.
Students will get feedback on their overall performance in the form of the final mark for the unit. Return to course details. BSc Molecular Biology. You will receive confirmation of whether you received a spot in Studentweb no later than Tuesday the week after the deadline. This course is based on MOL , Experimental molecular biology I, and it is highly recommended to take it during the same semester.
In MOL , the students will get a theoretical and practical introduction to important methods and techniques in biochemistry and molecular biology. These include molecular cloning, PCR, plasmid propagation in bacteria, plasmid purification, restriction analysis, overexpression of genes in mammalian cell lines, microscopy, as well as gel electrophoresis and Western blotting. Furthermore, the students will get hands-on experience and consolidation of nucleic acid data bases and other bioinformatics tools.
The students will learn the physical and chemical principles of the analytical methods. Along with the practical aspects of the course, there will also be put particular emphasis on the documentation, critical evaluation including qualitative and quantitative analysis of the results.
Springer Protocols platform has migrated to Experiments
Laboratory safety aspects will also be a focus. The purpose of the course is to provide solid basic knowledge and skills in experimental biochemistry and molecular biology thus establishing the basis for further studies in molecular biology.

On completion of the course the student should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:. Courses other than MOL , with a similar scope, can be considered, if successfully completed and, if approved, can replace MOL as requirement.
All activities are mandatory including the introductory meeting, lectures and lab exercises. Completed activities are valid for 6 semesters.
