Genome sequencing is revolutionising the field of medicine. The ability to sequence and analyse the genome of individuals in a fast and inexpensive manner, provides an unprecedented level of genetic information associated to health and disease. The data processing of such levels of information is challenging, and requires specialised skills in genomics, health and data analysis.
You will explore how genome sequences are analysed and you will receive hands-on experience in data analysis. You will also study gene and genome technologies, as well as have the opportunity to develop your professional skills.
Personalised medicine is becoming a priority for health providers and governmental agencies around the world. Studying Health Genomics at the University of Essex will enable you to be a part of the next generation of healthcare providers, equipped with the necessary skills in health data analytics and genomics to make a real difference.
Potential career paths include: genomics consultant, health data analyst, genomic diagnostic specialist and scientist/researcher in health genomics.
