Quantitative Genetics and Genome Analysis

The revolution in genetic mapping technology and the advent of whole genome sequences has turned quantitative genetics into one of the fastest growing areas of biology. Quantitative Genetics & Genome Analysis is part of a suite of programmes offering specialist routes in Animal Breeding & Genetics, Evolutionary Genetics, or Human Complex Trait Genetics. Based in the internationally renowned Institute of Evolutionary Biology, this MSc draws from the wealth of expertise available there, as well as the teaching, research expertise and facilities of Scotland's Rural College, the University's Centre for Molecular Medicine, the Medical Research Council's 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. Applicants who wish to select their area of specialisation during the programme should apply for this umbrella programme. Applicants with a preferred programme option can apply for: - Animal Breeding and Genetics - Evolutionary Genetics - Human Complex Trait Genetics
