About

The Omics approach is based on a holistic view of research combining hypothesis based research with data and technology based research. Omics is an objective investigation which seeks to describe the full situation in the chosen biological system and is therefore in contrast with the traditional reductionistical view which is applied in biochemistry, molecular biology etc. Omics encompass several different approaches such as proteomics, transcriptomics, interatomics, and metabolomics. For instance, proteomics concerns the study of (potentially) all expressed proteins in a given biological system.

The Master’s degree in Omics is the result of an international collaboration between the University of Southern Denmark, Aarhus University, the Technical University of Denmark, the University of Copenhagen, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Science (GUCAS) and the Sino-Danish Centre for Education and Research (SDC).

Career opportunities

The Omics approach can be applied in a broad spectrum of companies:

  • The biotechnology industry
  • Companies within the area of medicine production (pharmaceutical companies)
  • Production and processing of food and ingredients
  • Hospitals
  • Universities and research institutions

Typically, Graduates with a Master’s degree in Omics will be able to find employment within the areas in the above-mentioned fields as Ph.D. students/research assistants, in core-facility departments as project managers, and within the food industry in the developmental and quality control departments, or as Ph.D. students and later on as assistant professors, associate professors, and professors.

Typical work tasks could encompass analysis of sequence data, mass spectrometry analysis, large scale DNA/RNA-sequencing, analytical biochemistry, quality control, product development, and furthermore research and developmental work related to Omics.

Programme Structure

Programme structure

A range of Bachelor degrees will supply the necessary knowledge within some, but not all, of the elements of the Omics programme.

The programme will therefore start with an individual Omics brush-up (4 ECTS) to ensure that you possess the needed knowledge. This module will be planned along with a lecturer to enhance the qualifications within selected areas.

The course Personalised Track (8 ECTS) also emphasizes a continuing individual guidance which seeks to ensure cohesiveness and expand knowledge and competences in relation to the courses of the programme.
