Course summary

Research overview

Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 credits of transferable skills training. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow students to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with their supervisor.

Within the human molecular genetics area, there is an emphasis on the role of repetitive DNA sequences in health and disease, and in chromosome stability. Research projects include:

  • studies to understand the molecular basis of myotonic dystrophy, the identification of genes involved in human developmental heart disorders
  • cardiac stem cells
  • the role of apoptosis in brain tumour development and therapy
  • artificial chromosomes and chromosome segregation
  • human genetic diversity
  • copy number analysis
  • molecular genetics of muscle disease
  • mouse models of muscle disorders
  • molecular genetic approaches to anthropology and human population genetics.
