This unit allows students to undertake a research project prepared for in prior or parallel study in BIOL6940. Students, under the direction of a member of academic staff, will spend a half-semester (or equivalent part-time) on project establishment and initiation. The project will be designed to produce viable results within the timescale of the project, but (because it is a research project) the amount and level of results will only evolve during the actual study. Approximately 40% of the time will be devoted to a review of the known scientific literature of the selected field, approximately 40% to method development and/or instrument establishment and approximately 20% to the attainment of experimental results. A typed literature review of a size defined below will be required.
In order to participate in this course, students must complete a compulsory Workplace Occupational Health and Safety requirement. Students will receive full information on this compulsory component in the course outline provided by the school.
