This major covers the study of life processes at the molecular and cellular levels, including the storage, transfer and regulation of genetic information, the structure and function of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and interactions between molecules and cells. The emphasis is on basic principles that underpin the processes unique to living organisms at the molecular and cellular levels. The concepts and techniques of molecular and cell biology form the foundation for studies of all aspects of modern biology and will be applied to different areas such as biomedical science, plant science, developmental biology and microbiology. This major provides a solid grounding for further study in any area of the molecular life sciences as well as medicine, bioengineering and biotechnology.

    Learning Outcomes

    1.  Demonstrate and apply knowledge of how biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology are used to elucidate the functions of molecules and cells.
    2. Integrate and extend their conceptual knowledge of the structure and function of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, as whole entities and in terms of their subcellular and molecular processes.
    3. Explain how biology is an evidence-based discipline involving observation, experimentation and hypothesis testing and how it relates to other scientific disciplines.
    4. Develop and implement experimental strategies to investigate different biological and experimental systems and analyse and present results of these investigations. 
    5. Critically assess biological information and apply it to theoretical, experimental and professional contexts.
    6.  Employ their collaborative and independent educational experiences of laboratory, project and coursework in other contexts.
    7.  Clearly communicate biological processes and principles to both science literate and non-science literate audiences.
    8. Recognise how biology contributes to resolving ethical, social, medical and environmental issues and the expectations this places on their professional practice.
