Molecular Genetics BSc (Hons)

Course Overview - Molecular Genetics BSc (Hons)

Molecular genetics is the study of genes at a molecular level, from their structure and function to how they pass on information and make sure other processes in cells are regulated effectively.

At Levels 1 and 2, you’ll study a broad range of life sciences topics, then at Levels 3 and 4, you’ll focus more on key aspects of molecular genetics and topics like advanced gene regulation and expression.

With any aspect of life sciences, it’s important to understand key theories of biology, from molecular level right up to full body systems and beyond.
