Course Description

Genetics, a discipline at the forefront of scientific developments, studies biologically inherited traits as diverse as those that cause human disease, allow a rare plant to live in a single, isolated location, or result in a desirable characteristic found in a domestic animal used in agriculture. Your studies in genetics involve the analysis of DNA and the many ways in which it is expressed. This major delivers a broad overview of the universal principles, potentials and problems associated with DNA-based life, and provides you with the essential skills of a geneticist. The knowledge acquired by studying genetics will open up many career opportunities allowing you to work in a wide range of disciplines as the knowledge you will gain in genetics is important for all biological sciences including agriculture, biochemistry, botany, conservation biology, ecology, medicine, microbiology, molecular biology and zoology.
