    The Master of Science (Genetics) program offers a broad graduate genetics education in areas ranging from population/ecological genetics to molecular genetics of gene function. Our internationally recognised research programs address fundamental questions in biology – gene expression, cell function, development and evolution – using model genetic organisms ranging from micro-organisms to human cells.

    Research is concentrated on the following areas of biology: fungal metabolism, gene regulation, development and pathogenicity, heavy metal homeostasis in plants, insects and mammalian cells, plant development and gene regulation, neurogenetics in insect and mammalian systems, ecological genetics and speciation in vertebrate and invertebrate systems.

    There is also has a strong focus on applied research in animal, plant and conservation genetics, including adaptation to climate change.


    A bachelor degree with a major in Genetics,or equivalent, with at least an H3 (65%) in the major.
