Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To develop students' abilities to assimilate compilations of experimental data and to draw valid conclusions from them.

Learning Outcomes:
After taking this course the student should be able to:
* study a collection of biochemical observations, such as the results section of a publication or simply a series of related observations compiled specifically for the exercise, and assess their significance. Indications of this ability could be, e.g. answering particular questions or writing the discussion section of a paper. It is especially important that the student learns to draw only such conclusions as are fully justified by the data.

Learning & studying T/F/A, Written communication T/F/A, Numeracy & computation T/F/A, Problem solving T/F/A.

Several members of academic staff will participate in the course, each providing a particular problem. This will be handed out and explained to the class, who will then have some 4 days to provide written answers. These will be marked and returned.
There will also be a problem to be answered during class under exam conditions.
