Semester 1 & 2

Organiser: Dr Dylan Jones

Overall aims and purpose

Mae'r modiwl hwn wedi'i gynllunio i roi trosolwg o batholeg gellog a moleciwlaidd. Bydd yn darparu mewnwelediad damcaniaethol ac ymarferol i ddulliau ymchwilio gan gynnwys technegau delweddu, histocemegol, imiwnocemegol a thechnegau moleciwlaidd. Bydd yn rhoi cyfle i ddod yn gyfarwydd ag ymddangosiad nifer o wahanol fathau o feinweoedd, organau a systemau a rôl patholeg gellog wrth reoli cleifion.

Sylwch Mae'r modiwl hwn yn rhan greiddiol o raglen gradd achrededig Gwyddorau Biofeddygol Ysgol y Gwyddorau Meddygol. Gall cynnwys ac asesiadau'r modiwl fod yn heriol i fyfyrwyr heb ddealltwriaeth gefndirol angenrheidiol o histoleg a histochemistry, ffisioleg ddynol, anatomeg a bioleg gellog.

Er mwyn gwella dysgu a dealltwriaeth, cofnodir darlithoedd gan ddefnyddio'r system Panopto.

Course content

Darlithoedd: Bydd myfyrwyr yn ymgymryd ag astudiaethau mewn technegau patholeg gellog glasurol fel paratoi a staenio sampl a'r rôl y maent yn ei chwarae wrth gynorthwyo ein dealltwriaeth o strwythur a swyddogaeth meinwe. Yna bydd myfyrwyr yn ymdrin â methodoleg fodern sy'n cael eu defnyddio mewn diagnosisau patholeg arferol fel diagnosteg foleciwlaidd gyda ffocws ar immunohistochemistry, PCR a thechnegau hybridoli.

Astudiaeth Achos: Bydd yr astudiaeth yn darparu profiad ddehongli ymchwiliadau patholeg cellog a moleciwlaidd.

Tiwtorial Bydd pob semester yn gorffen gyda thiwtorial i baratoi ar gyfer yr arholiad diwedd semester.

Assessment Criteria

C- to C+

Category C (50%-59%):

Completed assessments present relevant accurate taught material but may lack explanation and context. Statements are largely correct but not further supported. Essays, answers, and reports are sufficiently coherent and well presented to demonstrate a sound understanding of module material.

threshold

Category D (40%-49%):

A threshold student should have a basic knowledge of the essential facts and key concepts presented in this module. Written answers should demonstrate an ability to organise relevant lecture material into a coherent argument. The answer may contain errors and knowledge gaps.

excellent

Category A (70%-100%):

Completed assessments present very accurate relevant taught material, integrated with numerous directed outside core text-reading and some self-researched information sources. Essays, answers, and reports present very coherent and well-organised arguments that demonstrate excellent overall knowledge and understanding of all module material.

Evidence of in-depth critical thinking and wider reading is important for grades of A+ and above

good

Category B (60%-69%):

Completed assessments present overall good accurate relevant taught material, integrated with some directed core text outside-reading. Essays, answers, and reports are well organised and structured, contain good coherent arguments, and demonstrate good overall knowledge and understanding of all module material.

Learning outcomes

  1. Nodi'r mathau o gelloedd a meinweoedd a geir mewn sleidiau microsgopig.

  2. Gwerthuso rôl dulliau patholeg foleciwlaidd mewn patholeg.

  3. Gwerthuswch y prosesau sy'n gysylltiedig â pharatoi meinwe ac esboniwch bwrpas pob un o'r prosesau hyn.

  4. Gwerthuso rôl patholeg gellog wrth reoli cleifion.

  5. Cymharwch a chyferbynnwch rolau'r dulliau histolegol a histocemegol cyffredin ar gyfer paratoi celloedd a meinweoedd dynol ar gyfer astudiaeth ficrosgopig mewn patholeg gellog.

Teaching and Learning Strategy

Hours
Private study

Self-directed background reading, data analysis and processing, assessment and examination preparation

164
Lecture

The core of the module consists of 8 lectures per semester.

Lectures may convey substantial elements of the subject content, provide core themes and explanations of difficult concepts, as well as set the scene for and inspire students' independent learning. Lectures encourage and enable students to develop skills in listening and selective note-taking, to appreciate how information is structured and presented, and to understand the means by which scientific information is obtained. Where appropriate, lectures include reference to experimental evidence and arguments for and against specific hypotheses. The traditional format may be enhanced through the use of computer-based or other learning aids and interactive student participation in groups or by communication networks.

Please note, for 2020/21, a blended learning style of delivery will be used. Students unable to attend Bangor University campus will be able to follow all aspects of the teaching online. On-campus teaching may be integrated, subject to Covid-19 related restrictions.

Tutorial

1 x 2-hour tutorial session per semester to prepare for exams.
