Our Masters in Molecular Microbiology focuses on the molecular biology of important microbial pathogens and industrial microorganisms. Students study the molecular mechanisms by which bacteria cause disease or can be exploited for the synthesis of biotechnologically important products. The course content and research projects are driven by the expertise in microbial genomics, genetics and biochemistry research that exists within the institute. State-of-the-art research facilities, such as our own genome sequencer, protein purification facilities, mass spectrometers and fluorescence microscopes means that students obtain first-hand experience in the latest molecular microbiological techniques. Together, the course provides the perfect springboard to future training at PhD level or gives you a range of skills and experience that will prove attractive to employers from industry or the health-care provision sector.
