Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics
Master of Science
Continue your academic development along the cutting edge of post-genomic science.
In recent years, the dramatic fall in the cost of gene sequencing has opened up new frontiers in genomic study and research. As the wealth of genome data grows across the biodiversity spectrum, the analysis and meta-analysis of genomic information will provide new insights into how organisms evolved, and their ecological significance.
Genomics also impacts areas such as conservation, as researchers seek to protect vulnerable species in the context of rapid climate and environmental change.
Building on your undergraduate study, you will learn the very latest tools and techniques in ecological and evolutionary genomics, and apply them to a current research area as part of a six-month thesis project.
You will receive expert tuition in areas including computational genomics, programming and bioinformatics, given by active researchers at the forefront of the field. The excellent standard of teaching is informed by the Research Council funded project work undertaken within the school.
