- Demonstrate in-depth understanding of normal process of protein production from DNA and how this can go wrong to cause mutation.
- Analyse, synthesise and summarise information, particularly with respect to interpretation of DNA sequence in terms of genetic code and protein production, manipulation of DNA sequence and analysis of pedigrees.
- Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of how mutations act to cause clinical conditions.
- Critically discuss current issues in molecular genetics.
- Perform literature-based research and evaluation using the Internet as a communication tool as well as to find and evaluate relevant information relating to molecular genetics.
