About the Course

During the degree project the student will explore and analyze a topic within the molecular biology field in depth. The student will plan the specific study in collaboration with the supervisor, implement the experiments and analyze the resulting data during one semester fulltime study.  The student shall summarize the work in an written scientific report and also do an oral presentation. The project work is normally part of a research project at one of the research groups at the department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, but it can also be done at another department, at a company, government agency, etc. The work usually contains both theoretical and experimentall elements, but entirely theoretical projects are also possible. The project can after agreement be extended to 45 hec or 60 hec.
