Course summary

Our BSc Molecular Biology course focuses on the structure and function of biologically important molecules, giving you a range of theoretical knowledge and practical lab skills.You will learn about DNA, RNA and proteins and the molecular events that govern cell function while exploring the relevant aspects of biochemistry, genetics and cell biology.Advances in molecular biology have led to the completion of several large genome projects that are changing the face of modern biology, especially in areas of medicine, agriculture and biotechnology.You will find out how this has helped us to begin to understand the molecular basis of illnesses and use genetic manipulation in biotechnology to make valuable products including blood clotting factors, insulin and vaccines.
