Course content

This Master’s course will teach you how 'big data' (omics) can be used to understand the mechanisms underlying biological processes and diseases. You will learn to extract the relevant information and perform functional analysis and validation of your selected targets. You will apply novel experimental techniques in the laboratory to work towards understanding the causes, and potentially find cures, for diseases.

This programme will be especially appealing to students with a background in biology, genetics, biochemistry, medicine and related areas, and for those who are interested in a career in modern biomedicine, whether going on to study a PhD in academia or straight to work in biomedical industry.
