Overview

Introduction

The Master's Degree in Genetics and Genomics at University of Barcelona is focused on basic and applied research, genetics, evolution, development and biomedicine, in the broadest sense, and provides the training required to access third-cycle studies. It prepares students for professional practice in the new technologies of genetic analysis and genomics in particular. As a result, graduates will have opportunities as highly qualified staff in companies and institutions in which these types of analysis are increasing relevant, including hospitals, diagnostic centres, and analysis and genotyping companies.

The teaching staff responsible for this master's degree have considerable research experience in the fields of genetics and genomics and, in most cases, lead groups that are at the forefront of research in these fields. Consequently, students receive up-to-date, in-depth training based on the latest genomics and genetics knowledge. In addition, researchers from the National Centre for Genome Analysis (CNAG) participate in the master's degree. The CNAG is an international leader in genomics studies. 

The University of Barcelona is the only Spanish university to offer this master's degree. The aim is to provide an up-to-date overview of the structure, function, regulation and evolution of genes and genomes applied to different fields of biology, such as embryo development and stem cells, human diseases and molecular evolution.
