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.
Microbiology research covers organisms from prokaryotes to eukaryotes, including archaea, bacteria, yeasts, lichens and filamentous fungi. Projects involve the use of physiological, genetic and genomic approaches to elucidate mechanisms of DNA recombination and repair (archaea and bacteria), of motility (bacteria), or of genome dynamics, sexual reproduction, biotechnological applications, or responses to environment and stress (fungi).
