About Animal Biotechnology
Masters degrees in Animal Biotechnology train postgraduates in the molecular and microbial manipulation of animals for purposes in agriculture and related industries.
Related postgraduate subjects and specialisms include Animal Science, Biotechnology and Bioengineering. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Animal Science.
With an ever-growing population and high demand for food supply, medicines, and other products, genetic modification of animals through sustainable practise is the key focus of courses in this field.
You will explore how molecular biological techniques can be used to improve animal growth rates and disease resistance, and even how biotechnology can improve agricultural effects by reducing an animal’s impact on the environment. Vocational training in lab testing, data collection and bioinformatics is a key component.
Careers in this field include traditional routes in veterinary science or management in the agrifood industry. You experience would also make you suitable for involvement in conservation projects, or even positions within government agencies.
A Masters degree in Animal Biotechnology is also excellent preparation for further research at PhD level.
