Modules 1, 2 and 5 are the most difficult modules, not because of the content but because of the lecturer. She is the coordinator of the subject. She has a VERY VERY thick French accent and I cannot understand a single thing she says. Every other lecturer is ok. Some can be too lazy or inept to answer questions on CampusWire (a few students still have pending unanswered questions after weeks!).

I really enjoyed this subject. It's very interesting, and it definitely made me want to pursue research in the structural biology field. I also liked how the content/techniques linked together nicely, and learning how cryo-EM, X-ray crystallography, NMR, and mass spec can be utilised to understand protein structure was pretty awesome. You also learn a lot about protein folding and misfolding, which was highly interesting and not that difficult if you've got a good general understanding of the basic principles of thermodynamics. Nonetheless, the organisation of this subject could be improved by providing students with more frequent notifications/updates of what's happening and uploading the lectures on time, which would make it even better (so I would actually rate this subject 4.5/5). Overall, I wouldn't exactly call this subject difficult, but it (particularly the exam) is based more on application (e.g. experimental design) rather than rote learning.

Covers interesting concepts based on experimental evidence.

Interesting but difficult subject. Very wide range of materials; covered deeply in lectures. Exam requires a certain level of understanding and how to apply knowledge of lecture materials.
