Course summary

Our MPhil Evolutionary Biology programme enables you to undertake a research project at the cutting-edge of the field using different experimental, field, molecular, genomics, epigenomics and bioinformatics technologies. that will improve understanding of Evolutionary Biology. Evolution is the key to understanding fundamentalmany questions in the life sciences. To comprehend the diversity of life on earth, it is essential to know the evolutionary link between organisms and the processes by which new traits originate and are maintained. In the biomedical sciences, comparisons of model organisms to humans, emergence of antibiotic resistance, or the identification of pathogen strains from molecular information all concern involve evolutionary processes. Therefore, evolution is of central importance forto most areas of the life sciences. Research in evolutionary biology covers a wide range of questions about evolutionary patterns and processes in microbes, plants and animals. Particular faculty strengths are evolutionary genetics and genomics, phyologenetics, behavioural ecology and evolutionary developmental biology. Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
