Course overview

Genetics has always been a very important aspect of biology and has become particularly topical with the completion of the Human Genome Project. Our Genetics course fits in well in combination with other life sciences subjects, allowing you to explore the full breadth of Genetics whilst placing particular emphasis on microbial aspects.

Microbiology is the study of those life forms that are essentially unicellular and mostly too small to see with the naked eye. It is an exciting and rapidly developing area of the life sciences and underpins much of the genetic, molecular, and medical developments that are revolutionising our lives.
