Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding

  • The graduate must, within one field defined by the master thesis project, possess knowledge regarding post-genomic molecular life science, analytical biochemistry or bioinformatics, based on the highest international research.
  • The graduate must be able to understand and reflect on knowledge regarding post-genomic molecular life science, analytical biochemistry and bioinformatics, based on a scientific approach. 
  • The graduate must be able to identify scientific problems connected to Omics approaches and reflect on application of the different available techniques.

Skills

  • The graduate must master specific scientific tools and methods within post-genomic molecular life science, analytical biochemistry and bioinformatics:
    • Tools and databases used in Omics
    • DNA-sequencing
    • mRNA expression analyses by sequencing and micro arrays
    • Qualitative and quantitative proteomics using mass spectrometry and electrophoretic techniques
    • Metabolite analyses by chromatography, NMR and mass spectrometric detection
    • Quantification in connection with gene expression
    • Interaction analyses
    • Chomatography and electrophoresis
  • The graduate must master the following general skills which are connected to employment in scientific research:
    • Acquisition of knowledge within a defined area of topics
    • General experimental design
    • Detailed planning of experiments
    • Interpretation of experimental data
    • Keeping of laboratory journals in execution of experiments
  • The graduate must be able to choose among scientific theories, methods, tools and general properties within analytical biochemistry, bioinformatics and different Omics approaches and apply these on scientific questions.
  • The graduate must on the basis of experiments and newly obtained knowledge be able to establish testable hypotheses or improve on existing ones. 
  • The graduate must be able to design experiments to verify or falsify a given hypothesis. 
  • The graduate must be able to discuss and arrange new experimental data in context of already existing knowledge. 
  • The graduate must be able to disseminate research based knowledge and discuss professional and scientific problems with both peers and non-specialist.

Competences

  • The graduate must be able to control and develop complex processes within different Omics approaches and suggest novel options if unexpected situations occur. 
  • The graduate must be able to independently initiate and implement disciplinary and interdisciplinary cooperation and to assume professional responsibility based on professional expertise. 
  • The graduate must be able to independently take responsibility for own professional development and specialization.
