Genetics is a vibrant and expanding discipline at the core of biological and medical sciences, playing a vital part in the development of genetic engineering and decoding of the human genome. On this course you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the nature, transmission and expression of genetic information in living organisms. You’ll also gain an insight into the applications of genetic techniques in fields as diverse as genetic engineering, developmental biology, biotechnology, diagnostics and therapies for human diseases, and conservation biology. While studying specialist genetics modules such as human genetic disorders and cancer genetics, you’ll also develop a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of related disciplines.Our integrated Masters offers you an additional year of specialist training. You’ll study advanced topics, such as high-throughput technologies, plant biotechnology and conservation genetics, and undertake an extended research project.
