This module examines the precise molecular details of transcription and translation using bacteriophage, prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms as illustrative examples. Gene structure is illustrated in the context of how a gene is transcribed to produce RNA, how the RNA is processed and translated to produce protein and how these processes are regulated through other DNA sequences and proteins. An introduction to bioinformatics will familiarise students with issues around data storage, access and analysis. Knowledge of second generation DNA sequencing technologies will underpin an exploration of sequence analysis, molecular phylogenetics and transcriptomics.
