Course content

This Group specialises in studies of the behaviour and properties of cellular systems with particular emphasis on the many interactions of macromolecules within cells and their membranes.

The Centre for Genetics and Genomics and School of Biology are at the cutting edge of many research areas and have state of the art facilities either within or within easy access.

With over £36 million in grants over the current RAE period as well as SRIF funds we have excellent facilities for genomics and post genomics including micro-arrays, sequencing, proteomics, imaging, mouse and zebrafish transgenics, model organisms (bacteria, yeast, worms, flies, arachnids, fish, amphibians, crustaceans and mammals) and bioinformatics.

We also foster interactions and discussions of current research with several internal themed discussion groups which include postgraduates, postdoctoral fellows and academic staff. We provide an environment for pursuing research in a fruitful and productive fashion leading to further development as scientists.
