Course content

Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 credits of transferable skills training. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow students to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with their supervisor.

Research in this area will examine systems responsible for maintaining genome integrity and securing accurate chromosome transmission in bacteria, archaea, yeast and vertebrates. It will also examine the genetics and biochemistry of bacterial motility. Specific projects will focus on chromosome biology, the mechanics of homologous recombination and DNA repair, flagellar motors and motile predatory bacteria. Telomere biology and genome dynamics are also major areas of interest.
