Biological Sciences (Genetics)

Genetics, is central to all areas of biology, from cellular differentiation and development, through reproduction, to biodiversity and conservation. Genetics is a fast moving field; with the advent of new technologies that make genome sequencing almost routine, we are seeing rapid advances in our understanding of areas as diverse as human disease and the diversity of organisms living in the deep sea. This course builds on the BSc Biological Sciences course and allows you focus increasingly on modules covering elements of Genetics. This includes classical genetics, gene regulation, epigenetics and RNA processing all the way to genome science. Our graduates work in diverse careers such as medicine, conservation, agriculture and more.
