At least 45 credits in the areas identified among the characteristic classes of L9 (Industrial Engineering); L7 (Civil and Environmental Engineering); L8 (Information Engineering); L27 (Chemical Science and Technology); L2 (Biotechnology). five-year university degree in one cycle between those indicated in the academic regulations of the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnological Processes. You will also be paired with a student from the year of study above you, so that you can benefit from their recent experience on the programme.
Each student is assigned a personal research project involving CRISPR, a technique that is changing the landscape of biological research and medicine. Recommended background: Six credits in the Cellular and Molecular category. The role of nutrients: Due to biochemistry the importance of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, their contribution to health were known. Prerequisite: Chem 101, 103 or 211. *Biol 223.
You will feel welcome from your very first day, and our low student-to-tutor ratio ensures that you will get to know your personal tutor and other academic staff members well during your years with us. You may also choose up to five keywords that are not on the list. This course provides an introduction to the ethical, social, and legal foundations of scientific practice. You will notice that many colleges dropped their Zoology and Botany departments, but maintain several courses in those specialties.
The Plant Sciences category covers many areas, including broad botany resources, regional botany, mycology, bryology, plant physiology, forestry, weed science, plant pathology, economic botany, plant nutrition, photosynthesis research, experimental botany, and plant cell research. Many already have work experience in the agri-food sector and are looking to broaden their knowledge and skills so as to advance their careers. Know someone who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame?
And three field-study trips, in Italy and abroad, help students synthesize and contextualize what happens in the classroom. Covered are the underlying principles of enzyme catalysis and techniques for the study of enzyme mechanism and structure. This will include discussion of cell envelop structures, extracellular secretion, enzymology, protein-protein and protein-nucleic acid interactions in DNA repair, recombination, replication, transcription and translation and the use of these organisms in biotechnology.
A course designed to permit laboratory or field research or intensive examination of a selected topic in biology. The Biological Sciences collection includes over 52,000 volumes and subscribes to about 335 serials. Resources in the Entomology/Pest Control category include, among other topics, general entomology, applied entomology, regional entomology, apiculture, aquatic insects, insect biochemistry and physiology, economic entomology, integrated pest management (IPM), and pesticide science.
A multidisciplinary exploration of the integrative processes underlying animal development, incorporating techniques of cellular and molecular biology for the study of development. 3 hrs. lec. Barrentine Memorial Scholarship, named for one of the Biochemistry department’s founders, and the Dr. Open Days will be held on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th June 2016, and Friday 16th September 2016. F, S Presentation of written and oral review of library research in microbiology and molecular biology by students for discussion with faculty and fellow students.
We also apply biological principles to social, medical and environmental issues. In addition, there are informal meetings of all program participants to exchange information on the research being done and to discuss areas of biochemistry/molecular biology that are of particular interest and excitement. Grade A is required in one of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics or Physics. Study of the reproduction, structure, development, evolution, and classification of the fungi, algae, bryophytes, and vascular plants.
The strong research orientation of this program will require a major time commitment for laboratory research from each student. BIOL 49900 - Biology Honors Thesis Research - Session Offered: Fall Spring Summer Research under the guidance of a scientist. Biological Sciences resources are located in the following libraries: Biology, Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Genetics and Biochemistry: in the Main Library, Westville; and the Life Sciences Library, Pietermaritzburg Ethnobotany, Entomology, Wildlife Science, Grassland Science, Plant Pathology, and Virology: in the Life Sciences Library, Pietermaritzburg Use the library catalogue iLink OPAC to search for books and journals housed in the UKZN libraries.
You may also consult the online Catalog , the online Schedule of Classes, or the course synopsis for more information. With lectures, workshops and tutorials this module will enable you to develop the core skills needed by biochemists in scientific writing, data handling and analysis, experimental design and scientific presentations.
