Learn about genetics and biotechnology and how they are improving health outcomes, boosting agricultural productivity and industrial processes, and enhancing environmental sustainability.
In this course, you can develop the knowledge and technical skills you need to contribute to many applications of molecular genetics and biotechnology.
Your first year is interprofessional and will provide a general introduction to biomedical science and other supporting disciplines.
Starting from second year, your study will expand to include genetics, biochemistry, microbiology and immunology, and you will be introduced to cutting-edge technology for molecular and genetic analyses.
You will also explore the legal, social and ethical implications raised by the advent of molecular biotechnology, issues surrounding intellectual property and patents, and commercial opportunities relevant to the biotechnology industry in Australia and surrounding regions.
High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
