BIOC06002 2013 HEALTH BIOCHEMISTRY 2
The module will enable the student to explain the structures, characteristics, activities and health impact of specific molecular components and cellular metabolic processes.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Explain key characteristics of enzymes.
State the characteristics of enzyme inhibitors and assess the effect of a potential inhibitor on enzyme activity.
Detail and experimetally determine relevant characteristics of nucleic acids
Module Assessment Strategies
During the delivery of this module, self-learning is encouraged among students through the use of comprehensive on-line resources including voice-supported presentations, on-line notes, and formative assessments. Laboratory technique and report-writing ability are assessed as part of the practical work performed during the module. Regular summative tests are used to encourage engagement with the module, monitor progress and provide feedback. This approach enables the student to take timely corrective action, in the event of failure to achieve the required standard, before the results significantly impact on the final grade.
The nature, structure, function, and/or characteristics of enzymes, body defence systems, nucleic acids and metabolic processes including related laboratory analysis.
