Course content

Omics describes a range of analytical techniques (including genomics, metabolomics, proteomics etc.) that are essential contributors to the understanding of human disease and to the development of personalised therapeutic strategies. You will learn detailed knowledge and practical skills required to understand, process and integrate multiomics data, preparing you for a broad range of careers in healthcare and/or industry, or further research (e.g. a PhD).

UCL offers a world-class research and healthcare environment in Genetics and Omics science, being a major contributor to Genomics England, which is the organisation set up to deliver the 100,000 Genomes Project: the whole genome sequencing of ~85,000 NHS patients affected by rare disorders or cancer.

This MSc will run within the UCL Centre for Genetics and Genomics based at UCL Royal Free Hospital (Department of Renal Medicine), which is an integrated research facility with state-of-the-art infrastructure for multiomic project design and data analysis.
