BIOINF 7200A - Research Project Part 1

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2019

This course is designed to develop the practical skills required for a successful career in scientific research or related activities. It provides advanced education and training in the principles of scientific research and the current state of knowledge and techniques used in the field of bioinformatics research. Students learn to search for and critically evaluate scientific literature relevant to their chosen field of bioinformatics, to plan and design scientific experiments, implement computational analyses, and to develop advanced written and verbal communication skills. Each student is expected to carry out a laboratory-based research project during the year. At the end of the year the project outcomes are to be written up as a thesis using a form similar to that required for publication of research data. Each student will be required to give a formal presentation of their research at the end of the year, followed by an oral defence of their findings and conclusions.
