In this topic, students will learn the principles and the regulation of: DNA structure, replication, damage and repair; gene transcription and translation; and protein synthesis, structure, folding and function. Students will gain an overview of the subject matter, will work in teams to apply their knowledge to solve problems in genetic engineering and will discover the relationship between DNA structure and function and develop skills in DNA manipulation, experimental design and scientific report writing.
This topic aims to develop students' knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of DNA, RNA and proteins and to provide them with opportunities to apply their knowledge and understanding to the solution of 'real-world' problems related to genetic engineering.
