Over the last 30 years a revolution has taken place that has put molecular biology at the heart of all the biological sciences. The gene revolution has included many technological advances and so biosciences graduates are required both to understand the theory which underpins these techniques, and to develop appropriate laboratory skills. This module builds on BSS020C134Y Cell and Evolutionary Biology to develop students’ understanding of the principles and applications of molecular biology.
