Structure & Function of Biomolecules - Project Work
Along the Structure & Function of Biomolecules course, you will get the opportunity to study a specific topic related to the course more in-depth in the form of a project work. The work will be conducted in groups of four students, and include the search for related information in scientific journals, books and on the internet, summarize your most important findings in a written report and finally present your work orally to the other students and teachers. Once you have formed a group, you select a topic based on the list below. Since several groups may select the same topic, please also select two backup choices. Two groups will be allowed to have the same topic. Once the topics have been divided between the groups, you will be informed of your topic and each group will be given a mentor to assist them throughout the project work.
Below you can find a table describing the different checkpoints in the project work and the dates for when each part of the work should be finished. Further down you can also find a description of what is expected from you when carrying out the different tasks. First you need to form groups and select your projects. Please send an e-mail to Anna Jansson (email@example.com) at the latest Tuesday November 9, 17:00, containing the following information:
• Complete names of all members in your group
• e-mail address that you check frequently to each group member • Three project topics in the order that you prefer them
If you have not found a group by this time, send an e-mail and tell us, so that we can arrange a group for you.
The topics will then be distributed between the groups, and before 10:00 on Wednesday November 10, you will receive an e-mail informing you on which topic you have received, which group you will be collaborating with in exchanging feedback as well as which mentor you have been appointed.
