Research Skills for Biology - BIOL703

This unit has been developed specifically for new MRes students to provide them with a solid foundation in the philosophy and undertaking of scientific research. Through a series of workshops students will incrementally build their skills and knowledge of research in Biological Sciences. In parallel, students will undertake a small research project through which they apply the very skills they are discussing in workshops and tutorial classes. The unit will provide students with experience in formulating hypotheses, designing experiments, data collection, analyses, and communication of results. The unit provides a recap of statistical analysis and works specifically to refine the writing and communication skills of students through various formats.
