Unit will run subject to numbers
This unit explores the suite of molecular tools available to biologists and how they can be applied to questions concerning the biology, ecology, diversity, phylogeography and evolution of marine organisms. Topics covered include theory and practice of key molecular tools such as PCR, electrophoresis, DNA fingerprinting and sequencing technology, and population genetics. Laboratory sessions and a class research project provide students with hands-on experience of PCR, and the collection and analysis molecular sequence data.
