Course summary

Our MPhil Genomics programme enables you to undertake a research project in an aspect of genomics that will advance the field. We have many international experts in genomics at Manchester and cutting edge facilities to enable your research. Genomics is the study of genomes, the complete complement of genetic material in each cell of an organism, and it lies at the heart of many of our research programmes in biology, medicine and health. Our research covers genomic structure, function and evolution, employing on-going developments in high-throughput experimental techniques such as next-generation sequencing. Our facilities enable genome sequencing for individual or population studies, genome engineering, single cell analyses, as well as high-throughput functional assays such as RNA-Seq that can characterise and quantify the RNA products found in cells or tissues, and epigenomic assays to identify chromatin modifications. Data from these applications provides an unprecedented opportunity to understand how the genome encodes the function of cells, tissues and organisms. Our genomics PhD students are using these genomic technologies and data to tackle major problems in biology, medicine and health research. Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
