Bachelor courses

Courses for students in their Bachelor phase.

Statistics (NWI-MOL028)

Lecturer: G. Tinnevelt
This is a second-year course for students of Chemistry, Natural Science and Molecular Life Sciences. This subjects include confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, linear regression and experimental design.

Data: Programming and Statistics (NWI-MOL150)

Lecturer: G. Tinnevelt
Statistical methods are needed to draw quantitative conclusions on the likelihood that differences in measurements are caused by the conditions imposed by the experiment (for example "A higher temperature leads to a higher yield of the reaction"). Also, statistics provides ways to set up a set of experiments such that maximum  information is obtained with minimal effort ('Design of experiments'). Therefore, statistics as a way to formally design and interpret experiments is indispensable knowledge for any chemist.
During this course, you will learn to draw conclusions based on the outcome of statistical tests. The course will cover the basic data analytic methods required to do research in chemical settings.

Chemometrics (NWI-MOL065)

Lecturers: G. Postma & J. Jansen
In this series of lectures, the principles and basics of Chemometrics are taught. There are also computer-supported workshops in which the student is able to practice the material on computers.
The course can be attended during the third year. It runs in the spring semester and it is obligatory for students who do their training period on the department.

Chemometrics for Molecular Life Sciences (MOL109)

Lecturers: G. Postma & J. Jansen
In this series of lectures, the principles and basics of Chemometrics are taught. There are also computer-supported workshops in which the student is able to practice the material on computers using specific data  analysis software.
The course is intended for Molecular Life Sciences students and students of other studies who want to study data analysis, but are not familiar with programming.
The course can be attended during the third year. It runs in the spring semester and it is obligatory for students who do their training period on the department.

RNA Structure and Function (NWI-MOL107)

Lecturers: G. Pruijn & G. Tinnevelt
RNA has emerged as a molecule of major importance throughout biology. Interest in RNA has exploded over the last decades, fueled in part by the discovery of microRNAs and RNA interference. In this course, students will be introduced to the diversity of especially non-coding RNA molecules and their functions in the cell. An interdisciplinary approach to understanding RNA structure and function will be taken.

Spectroscopy Project (NWI-MOL051)

Lecturers: S. Cristescu & G. Tinnevelt
The students will work in different research labs, building up set-ups or using state of the art aparatus.Registration for the course needs to be done 1 month in advance. The number of positions is limited by the availability of exeperimental setups.

Bachelor internship

Supervision: department staff members.
Students can do a short training period of nine weeks (Bachelor Thesis) to get acquainted with the research of the department, possibly in combination with other research groups. A list of topics can be found here.
