Course summary

This is an interdisciplinary programme with teaching provided by Life Sciences and Computer Science research active academics as well as other experts in the field. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of how changes in the genome relate to human disease. You will be trained to pursue a career in medical genomics in academia and industry. This programme has a strong applied and practical focus. Hands-on learning provides you with the practical and computational skills needed for a successful career in medical genomics. This programme will provide you with a solid understanding of the structural complexity of genomes and how mis-regulation of genes can result in disease. In conjunction, specialist classes will provide you with practical skills in genome wide disease identification and molecular diagnostics via laboratory sessions. This programme is taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars, computing workshops and investigative molecular and clinical laboratories. You are encouraged to actively engage with your learning. Group work is prominent in many modules and there will be opportunities to discuss and explore work with peers, academics and the technical team. Assessment is diverse and includes portfolio-work, writing a scientific paper, analysing genomic data, preparing a poster and presenting results.
