I really enjoyed this subject. I 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 definitely improved if the coordinator provided students with more frequent notifications/updates of what's happening and uploaded the lectures on time (the organisation was quite messy; had this subject been run well I would rate it 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.

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 most of what she says. Every other lecturer is ok. Some can be too lazy to answer questions on CampusWire (a few students still have pending unanswered questions after weeks!) to the point where I had to directly email them informing them of pending questions where they'd be like "oops! I should look at campuswire more often teehee my bad! :3" like yeah bro you haven't look at it in weeks. The content is great though.

I agree with the previous poster who said the coordinators modules are the worst to sit through as her videos are tedious and low quality, which is difficult when she does 30% of the modules. I liked her tutorials though. Other lecturers were good and the content was fairly interesting. I liked having small weekly-ish assessments rather than a big essay, and the exam/MST were difficult but fair - if you learn the content you could do most of the questions. It is important that in the tutorials you actually talk to other students and work together, especially as you do a lot of hands on activities.

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.
