Recommended previous knowledge

BIO100 Cell Biology, BIO200 Biochemistry

Cell biology (BIO100)

Biochemistry (BIO200)

Exam

Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written assignment (Home exam)1/1 A - F

Coursework requirements

compulsory exercises
Compulsory course attendance that must be completed and approved before access to the laboratory: Electronic Course in Health, Safety and Environment
Mandatory assignments are to be completed at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. Absence due to illness or other reasons must be communicated to the laboratory personnel as soon as possible. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times can be made, unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the course exam.
