This MSc draws from the wealth of expertise available in the internationally renowned Institute of Evolutionary Biology, where it is based, as well as the teaching, research expertise and facilities of the Scotland's Rural College, the Universitys Centre for Molecular Medicine, the Medical Research Councils Human Genetics Unit and the Roslin Institute (birthplace of Dolly the Sheep).
Each year the syllabus is fine-tuned to suit current issues in evolutionary, plant, human and animal genetics.
Students who are uncertain about how they intend to specialise are recommended to apply to this programme, and may change their degree selection to one of the specialist degrees during the year.
This programme consists of two semesters of teaching through lectures, tutorials, seminars and computer practicals, followed by a research project.
* Population and Quantitative Genetics
* Genetic Interpretation
* Statistics and Data Analysis
* Linkage and Association in Genome Analysis
* Mini Research Project
* Either Bioinformatics or Molecular Phylogenetics
Optional courses (selected according to degree specialisation)
* Quantitative Genetic Models
* Molecular Evolution
* Genetics of Human Complex Traits
* Animal Genetic Improvement
* Evolution and Climate Change
The minimum entry requirement is normally a UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent, in biological or biomedical sciences, medicine, agriculture or animal sciences, with evidence of quantitative skills.
Alternatively a background in mathematics, statistics or physics with evidence of an interest in genetics will be considered.
Students with less than the minimum qualification who can show sufficient additional relevant experience will also be considered.
