To provide a wide-ranging view of the diversity of topics within molecular & cellular biology. To develop student understanding of underlying fundamental principles in molecular & cellular biology. To draw together knowledge and understanding gained through the taught course, professional placement and attendance at seminars by experts in areas outside those normally encountered in the Department. To highlight the integrated nature of the modern approach to solving biological problems and the construction of theories based on information/data drawn from many areas of science.

Learning Outcomes:
After taking this course the student should be able to:
* produce a written summary of a research seminar understandable by a degree level biological scientist;
* describe, through the writing of essays under examination conditions, topics that reach across a range of subject areas within molecular & cellular biology.

Learning and studying T/F/A, Written communication T/F/A, Information handling & retrieval T/F/A, Working independently T/F/A.

The content of the unit encompasses the whole of the MCB experience of the student. That is the placement experiences, the units taken and the series of topics covered in the Departmental Seminar Programme.
