BSc Laboratory Based Proteomic Project


Learning Outcomes

The project will enable students to undertake independent research work of their choice under the supervision of one or more members of staff. This is done in a research environment to encourage a critical approach to the collection, recording and evaluation of data.

Students are expected to:
● Identify and define a suitable area for investigation and prepare a research protocol
● Acquire techniques of literature searching and apply these to the project
● Plan experiments/make observations/critically assess the literature with the aim of contributing to the level of knowledge in the research field under investigation
● Analyse and present data and observations, and discuss these in relation to existing knowledge in the field?
● Highlight unanswered questions and areas of controversy in the research area and make suggestions for future research
● Develop skills of scientific writing, and the presentation of illustrated verbal reports using the IT skills acquired during the course
● Achieve some degree of independence in their work.
