SCH2141 Advanced Biomedical Techniques
Credit Points: 15
SCH1111 Fundamental Biomedical Techniques
This unit sets forth the basic principles of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.  The major areas covered are genome sequences (genomes and variations), genome expression (microarrays and proteomics) and whole genomes (genome circuits, synthetic biology and systems biology).  Students extract and assay a variety of known and unknown DNAs.  A selection of PCR amplicons are sequenced and this data is analysed using online shareware applications.  Instruction takes place in the context of interesting but complex questions derived from biomedical case studies.  Students   use bioinformatics to explore the biomedical content and process contained within each case study.
