30 Credits GRADUATE YEAR



Aims/Description: This unit involves an in-depth survey of the current literature relevant to the student's Research Project (MBB6403). It is carried out before laboratory work on the project commences in order to prepare the student with a comprehensive understanding of the relevant subject knowledge, approaches and techniques. The exact nature and scope of the literature review will be determined by discussion between the student and the supervisor. Students will build upon the skills in literature searching and interpretation they have developed in their undergraduate studies, making use of a variety of databases and literature-searching tools. The unit involves primarily private study by the student under the direction of the project supervisor who will meet the student at regular intervals to discuss progress.
