BCMB3888: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Project

Our ever-changing world requires knowledge that extends across multiple disciplines. This unit presents the opportunity to bring together the concepts and skills you have learnt in biochemistry and molecular biology and apply them to an authentic interdisciplinary project that blends biochemistry and molecular biology and a different discipline. In this unit, you will continue to understand, explore and apply disciplinary knowledge, while also meeting and collaborating with students from a different discipline in the University through project-based learning; identifying and solving problems, collecting and analysing data and communicating your findings to a diverse audience. All of these skills are highly valued by employers. This unit will foster the ability to work in interdisciplinary teams, and this is essential for both professional and research pathways in future.
