Molecular Genetics and Genomics from Wayne State University offers a didactic, laboratory and human biology-oriented curriculum in modern genetics and genomics. 


Molecular Genetics and Genomics from Wayne State University includes both Plan A (research thesis required) and Plan B (essay required) degree plans. Plan B was added because we have found that not all students are looking for an MS degree that requires work in the laboratory. For example, individuals training for careers in education or seeking advance in their current employment might find that Plan B is sufficient to meet their educational goals or the demands of their employer.

  • acquire a broad understanding of current molecular genetics and genomics including current areas of research and research methodologies.
  • master data analysis and learn to critically evaluate their own data and data in the research literature.
