- The unit is taught in odd-numbered years only and facilitates students to actively integrate their knowledge of both art and science into their growing understanding of biological art.
- Students are able to (1) progressively integrate their knowledge of both art and science into their growing understanding of biological art; (2) explore the nature of biological art and develop a growing understanding of some of its aesthetic, conceptual, social and ethical aspects; (3) understand some of the limitations of the use of the life science technologies in the production of biological art; and (4) understand and apply biological art as a communication tool.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) tutorial presentation; (2) tutorial participation; and (3) seminar summaries. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

- This unit has a similar structure to APHB5518 Biological Art Integration Studies II, but the content is novel. Students should take both units over their degree, but the order is not important.
- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
