Forensic Analysis : Microtrace
This module in part, aims to provide students with a foundation in the basic principles of molecular biology and its practical applications for basic forensic analysis. Emphasis will be placed on the structure of DNA, its molecular functions and how DNA can be isolated from different sources at a potential crime scene for basic analysis.
Further emphasis will be placed on the analysis of RNA, proteins and chromosomes as additional molecular laboratory tools to generate useful biological information.
This information is to prepare students for a subsequent module, 'DNA Profiling and Criminalistics', in Stage 4 of the programme. The module will also introduce the students to both synthetic and natural polymer chemistry.

The module aims to familiarise the student with polymer molecular weight and structure, polymer structure-property relationships, polymer synthesis and polymerisation mechanisms. The module will then introduce students to polymers in forensic trace evidence. In this regard, the techniques used in the analysis of natural and synthetic polymers, such as fibres, DNA, and paint, will be explored.
