Genetics is at the cutting edge of modern biology and the fast pace of major new developments has made genetics an exciting field of study. Recent developments in genomics, gene editing and biotechnology in particular, have led to huge advances in the fields of personalised medicine and genetic engineering; areas that have the potential to revolutionise how we treat and think about disease, how we produce crops and manufacture new biological materials. In short, modern genetics underpins all of biology. Whether your interests lie in medicine, cancer biology, evolution, biotechnology, plant genetics and food security or molecular biology, genetics has something to offer you.
