This subject will facilitate students to understand and visualize processes in cell biology and those responsible for DNA transmission and expression hence mechanisms by which bacteria inherit genetic information as the blue print of life. The lectures will explain relationship between structure and function in molecular biology and how this relationship operates to control biochemical processes. Topics include macromolecules like DNA, RNA and proteins and how processes like replication, transcription and translation operate, eukaryotic genetics. Students will cover related aspects such as mutation and mutagenesis, effects of mutation and how cells overcome mutation. Students will also learn about basic techniques in molecular biology as the basis for genetic engineering.
This course introduces students to major principles of clinical engineering. The scope of clinical engineering covers pre-market, market and post-market life-cycle of medical devices as well as risk and regulatory requirements. These include procurement planning, incident investigation, equipment management, productivity, cost effectiveness, information systems integration, and patient safety activities.

Manual analyses of biomedical signals has many limitations and very subjective. Therefore, computer analysis of these signals is essential since it can provide accurate diagnosis as well as quantitative measurement. Hence, this course presents methods of processing the biomedical signals. The course will discuss the fundamental and current approach of biomedical signal processing. Among biomedical signal processing topics covered in this course are: Fourier analysis, Fourier transform, data acquisition, digital filter design and discrete Fourier transform. Furthermore, few current approaches on biomedical signal processing techniques were also introduced: instantaneous energy and frequency, short-time Fourier transform wavelet transform and time-frequency analysis.
