ASSESSMENT: 70% continuous assessment + 30% Final exam


CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT (70%):

Seminars and journal papers will be uploaded to Moodle on Tuesday. They can be done individually or in groups (maximum 5 members) at class or at home but in any case they must be delivered before Thursday of the same week.


2) Research report (20%):

It will be done in groups of 3-5 memebers and it will consist ina written part and an oral exposition.

The written part of the research report (80% of the research report mark) will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria: content (including the relationship with metabolism), spelling mistakes, fluency in English, scientific expression, structure and clarity. All group members will have the same mark of this part.

The oral exposition of the research report (20% of the research report mark) will be individually evaluated on the basis of the following criteria: expression and clarity. Reading during exposition will be penalized.
