概要：Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 taught credits. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow students to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with their supervisor. Candidates should have at least a lower second class Honours Degree in a relevant topic. Genetics is the scientific study of inheritance and as such is a very broad research area. Within the School of Biology, research in Genetics is focused on the Institute of Genetics, most groups of which are located within the Queen's Medical Centre. Projects in genetics cover a wide spectrum from population and evolutionary genetics through to molecular and biochemical genetics. They have the common aim of understanding how the genetic material achieves its functions and how it is passed down through generations. Some of the research involves classic genetic approaches, including the isolation of mutants with specific phenotypes and the study of their behaviour in genetic crosses. These studies involve model organisms that include bacteria, yeasts and other fungi, Xenopus, zebrafish and mice.
