Subject Description
Two research projects are to be undertaken with different supervisors, designed and chosen in consultation with these academic staff members. Emphasis may be placed on developing competence in a range of laboratory and field techniques not already familiar to the student. Selection for Advanced Biology is based on merit and the availability of projects, and intending students should consult the Subject Coordinator before enrolment.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. An understanding of scientific research in two disciplines in Biological Sciences;
2. A working knowledge of the subject area of their research project;
3. The ability to design and carry out a research project;
4. An aptitude or critical reading of published literature, and ability to synthesise knowledge and techniques from published sources;
5. An understanding of some basic concepts in Biological Sciences;
6. The ability to present experiments, results and interpretations clearly and concisely in written reports and as seminar presentations

Extra Information
