University of Bath
This programme provides a mix of taught components, extended laboratory projects, literature reviews and preparation of a grant proposal based on a research dissertation. This course gives our students an insight into a number of modern research activities and techniques, and provides generic, transferable skills training needed for all early stage researchers. The programme also addresses the scientific, ethical and commercial context within which the research takes place. This course concentrates on understanding the molecular principles underlying the biology of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeasts. In particular, students study gene expression and regulation, gene transfer, genome structure, epidemiology, cell communication, and pathogenicity and virulence factors. The programme can also be studied as the 1st year of an integrated PhD programme.
1st or upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate subject. IELTS 6.5 (with not less than 6.0 in each of the 4 components).
Modules include: Structural biology in biotechnology and medicine; microbial evolution (from the laboratory to nature); molecular evolution and phylogenetics; pathogenesis and immune evasion by microbes; molecular biology of microbial adaptation; microbial pathogenicity; infection and immunity; bacteriology; virology; microbial genetics.
