We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Genomics offer advanced study of organisms in terms of their genomes (the complete set of DNA within a single cell of an organism). Practices such as genetic recombination, DNA sequencing methods, and bioinformatics are employed to sequence, assemble, and analyse their structure and function.
Related topics and postgraduate specialisms within Genomics include Genomic Medicine, Medical Genetics and branches of Biotechnology and Biomedicine.
Courses in this field provide several specialisations for you to choose from, including Medical and Veterinary Genomics, Evolutionary Genomics, and Plant Genomics. Whether you choose a particular focus for your degree, or opt to work on a broader range, there are plenty of practical, transferrable skills which you can employ in numerous future careers.
These include: undertaking laboratory research in topics such as gene therapy; analysing genomes through 3D modelling and bioimaging; chemical examination and manipulation of tissue cultures, from individual genomes, to cells and whole organisms.
Your experience would be suitable for: technical genomics in hospitals, veterinary centres or forensics departments; consultancy in industries such as agriculture or pharmaceuticals; policy making for NGOs, private SMEs or government agencies.

There is currently a worldwide shortage in graduates qualified in Bioinformatics and the skills to interpret the data that is going to underpin advances in biology and medicine in 21st Century.
The. Genomic Medicine and Healthcare course.
The increasing impact of genetics in healthcare and the development of newer sophisticated technologies requires contributions from research scientists, clinical laboratory scientists and clinicians to investigate the causes of, and therefore permit optimal management for, diseases for which alterations in the genome, either at the DNA sequence level or epigenetic level, play a significant role.
Rapid advances in genetics and genomics is revolutionising the practice of modern medicine and healthcare and as such health and medical services around the globe are preparing their work forces for genomics integration.
Ecologists and evolutionary biologists now routinely use next-generation DNA sequencing in their research, and graduates who are skilled in both genome analysis as well as ecology and evolution are rare.
The advent of affordable rapid genome sequencing will produce enormous amounts of genetic data on both individuals and populations, and the challenge for scientists is to unlock the potential of this ‘big data’.
Genomic technologies and information will transform practice across the clinical professions over the next decade. This MSc is a new programme developed by Health Education England and being offered by a network of centres across England.
Learn to apply genetics, genomics and bioinformatics to patient care. Learn from clinical and academic experts from The University of Manchester, Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine, and the University of Liverpool. .
