Biology: Molecular Genetics & Biotechnology
The master specialisation Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology integrates genetics, molecular biology, genomics and biotechnology into an attractive program for students, with excellent career perspectives. Through courses and research projects, students are trained by experts in the areas of molecular biology, microbiology, plant genetics, cellular imaging, animal disease models, and various –omics technologies and the corresponding bioinformatics. Attention is paid to the application of these techniques to biotechnology, i.e. how studies on model organisms can be translated to improve crops or human health. Students graduating in this master specialisation are well trained to start a research career in biological and medical sciences or lead projects in industrial or institutional research environments.
Coordinator: Dr. D. Claessen
