Course Summary

The advent of affordable rapid genome sequencing will produce enormous amounts of genetic data on both individuals and populations, and the challenge for scientists is to unlock the potential of this ‘big data’. Doing so requires a new generation of scientists who can combine genetics and bioinformatics to understand how genomic changes cause diseases such as cancer, thus enabling the development of novel treatments, through drugs and gene therapy, and prevention strategies. With the huge expansion in number of individual genomes being sequenced, this is one of the fastest growing areas of biomedical science as we embrace the era of personalised medicine. You will develop the in-depth knowledge and specialised skills required to apply genetics and genomics theory to practical problems in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, and to undertake research in genetics and genome analysis. Students will acquire knowledge and skills for employment or PhD positions in the expanding fields of genomics, bioinformatics, or other medically-related research, and academia.
