Course summary

The Molecular Genetics BSc at King’s is a multidisciplinary degree programme focusing on the advances in the field of biology that investigate how the structure and functions of genes and the genome regulate the processes and mechanisms of life. Geneticists study how DNA is replicated, repaired, and decoded to make protein and other molecules within cells and tissues, which in turn impact the physiology, behaviour, and wellbeing of living things. The course covers the broad range of genetics from the molecular basis of genes and genomes to evolutionary and healthcare genetics. The understanding of how genes and genomes work provides insights into disease and avenues for developing new therapies within personalised medicine, As an expanding research area, Molecular Genetics contains many topics about our life, health and wellbeing and many issues of wide relevance for today’s society.**Key benefits**- Europe's largest centre for medical and professional healthcare education- Close links with the Guy’s and St Thomas’s Hospitals NHS Trust Clinical Genetics service and Genomic Laboratory Hub- State-of-the-art research facilities such as the Biomedical Research Centre’s Genomics Core Facility- Teaching by internationally renowned scientists and researchers- One of the UK's best graduate employment rates- Contemporary approach based on our history of pioneering discoveries – including our part in finding the structure of DNA- Flexible options to tailor your degree through overseas study, work placement or to switch to a four-year MSci**Please see our online prospectus for further details on this programme: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergraduate**
