Course summary

The Molecular Genetics MSci at King’s is a multidisciplinary degree programme that focuses on the advances in the field of biology that studies structure and functions of genes and chromosomes in order to understand the processes and mechanisms of life from molecules to cells and organisms. This is also useful in study of developmental biology and aging, and in understanding and treating genetic diseases. You will study how DNA is replicated, repaired, and decoded to make protein and other molecules within cells and tissues, which in turn influences 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 behavioural genetics. 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.- State-of-the-art research facilities such as the Biomedical Research Centre's Genomics Core Facility- Teaching by internationally renowned scientists and researchers- 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 or work placement- Fourth year focused on learning research skills**Please see our online prospectus for further details on this programme: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergraduate**
