Biology: Molecular Genetics & Biotechnology
The information on this page is subject to change for 2020-2021
The master specialisation Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology focusses on genetics, molecular biology, genomics and biotechnology of animal, plant and microbial systems. 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. This master specialisation is suited as a basis for starting a research career at a university or research institute and for a position in a bioscience-based company.
