Summary

Cutting-edge ecologists and evolutionary biologists now routinely use high-throughput DNA sequencing in their research. But it is hard to find graduates with training in both genomics and ecology/evolution. This MSc programme will train a new generation in cross-disciplinary skills with many applications in academia and industry. You will be taught by internationally recognised researchers who are applying genomic methods to a wide range of issues in ecology and evolution.

This programme is taught by a dynamic group of scientists doing cutting-edge research. For example, Professor Steve Rossiter carries out world-leading research on bat genome evolution, Dr Yannick Wurm has discovered a social chromosome in fire-ants, and Dr Richard Buggs is using genomic methods to find tree genes for resistance to ash dieback. This means that our teaching is informed by the latest developments, and individual projects can be at the leading edge of current progress. You will also benefit from state-of-the-art super-computing and informatics resources.
