Course summary

Molecular biology is the study of biological systems at the molecular level. It has opened up since the discovery of the structure of DNA and is being used to change aspects of medicine, agriculture and industry - for example, through genetic engineering. It underpins the genomics revolution that is changing the face of all biological and biomedical science areas. **Areas of study**On this programme, you will learn how combined genetic and molecular approaches have led to the understanding of fundamental biological and cellular processes. You will also be introduced to molecular cloning and genetic manipulation techniques central to the study of organisms and to biotechnology.**Flexibility**Biological Sciences explores the study of living organisms, covering everything from the interactions of animals in their environment to how genes are expressed. We offer 12 different biological sciences subject areas, including molecular biology. Regardless of your initial application choice, you will have the opportunity to explore aspects of each of our programmes in the early years and choose to specialise in whichever one interests you.
