This module introduces the fundamentals of cell biology, molecular biology and genetics. Topics covered include cellular organelles, membrane trafficking, cell cycle and division, chromosome structure, study of genes, eukaryotic gene expression, epigenetics as well as molecular events of replication, transcription and translation. This module is conducted at NP.
This module is designed to equip students with knowledge and molecular techniques that are used to analyse samples. Students will learn about the isolation of nucleic acids and gel electrophoresis, applications of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and real-time PCR (RT-PCR) in molecular testing, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping, and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). This module is conducted at NP.
This module is an advanced module that focuses on applications of bioinformatics, molecular testing assays and techniques, which enable accurate and precise detection of biomarkers as well as infectious pathogens found in clinical samples. This module is conducted at NP.
