Content and learning outcomes
The course takes the form of scientific, higher seminars that address current trends in research focusing on spatial genomics where doctoral students' own results, as well as other researchers' results, are presented, critically reviewed, discussed and given feedback. The course literature focuses on current trends in spatial genomics.
The course is the first in the seminar series.
Intended learning outcomes
After completion of the course the doctoral student should have the knowledge and ability to
- show basic knowledge, both broad and specialized, in the overall subject area of biotechnology with emphasis on the scientific subject area of the course (spatial genomics).
- show basic ability to present, critically examine and discuss scientific papers in the subjects of biotechnology with emphasis on the scientific subject area of the course.
- show basic insights of academic authorship and the international scientific publishing landscape with relevance to the scientific subject area of the course.
- demonstrate basic ability identify, discuss and reflect on ethics and sustainability aspects in the research that is discussed within the framework of the subject area of the course.
The course comprises approximately 80 full-time study. The course takes the form of scientific, higher seminars, typically biweekly, distributed evenly over a study year. Scientific articles and the doctoral students' own work are presented, reviewed critically and discussed. A more detailed description of the course content and structure can be found in the course memo.
Literature and preparations
Eligible for studies at the third-cycle level.
Literature in the form of published articles and the doctoral students' own works are assigned separately for each individual session.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- DEL1 - Participation, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Additional information about the course and grade criteria are found in the course memo.
