About

Get a head start in molecular biology research with this Molecular Biology Research Extensive program offered at the University of Queensland.

Overview

If your goal is to work at the coalface of molecular biology research, this two-year program will give you a head start. It'll enhance your technical and research skills in core areas of molecular biology, protein technology and bioinformatics through a two- or three-semester laboratory immersion. 

You can undertake the research within university laboratories, in an industry setting with co-supervision by one of our academics, or as a placement under an industry-based supervisor in a company, government department or other suitable organisation.

In this Molecular Biology Research Extensive program from University of Queensland you'll learn the latest techniques in molecular biology, like protein engineering, artificial evolution, enzymology, high-throughput screening, bioinformatics, ancestral sequence reconstruction, fundamental methods of molecular cloning, protein purification and LC-MS analysis of small molecules.

You'll also learn how to formulate a hypothesis, design and execute experiments, and become familiar with Australian safety standards. Regular consultations with your supervisor allow you to discuss progress and receive feedback and guidance.

Program highlights
