This degree programme enables you to discover and understand the molecular processes and genetics that lie at the very heart of biology. You will discover what underpins a range of fields as diverse as evolution, the molecular basis of cancer, and microbial genetics.
We are extremely well placed, with close links to the John Innes Centre and the Institute of Food Research, and scientists from these institutes contribute to the teaching of many of the advanced modules. You will be taught by leading practitioners through our partner institutions on the Norwich Research Park, contributing to our wide range of subjects and modules available to study. A number of our students carry out their final year projects within these institutes, benefitting from the excellent facilities and expertise in numerous aspects of molecular biology.
These features, together with the regular visits and seminar talks given by leading scientists, make UEA one of the best centres in the country in which to study molecular biology and genetics.
