Genetics and Evolution (including a Foundation Year) - University of Chester

Genetics and evolution lie at the very heart of biology and therefore inform our knowledge of life on earth. Evolutionary principles can be used to give us a better understanding of health and disease, how life on earth has changed over time and how it may change in the future. The molecular advances made over the last 50 years have given us whole genome sequencing and the ability to genetically manipulate organisms. The increasing number of organisms that have been sequenced allow deeper probing of Darwin’s ideas and the 'Tree of Life' – which have consequences in fields as wide as medicine, crop production, forensic analysis and zoo breeding programmes. If you are interested in studying this course with a Foundation Year, please note you will be taught at the University of Chester for your Foundation Year, and subsequent years of study (Levels 4, 5 and 6) will be based at University Centre Shrewsbury.
