About

The research in Genetics at the University of Cambridge, covers a wide spectrum of biological problems, united by the application of genetics tools and approaches. Research themes range from understanding basic mechanisms in cell biology relating to the mechanics of division, to aspects of population biology focused on issues of ecological and evolutionary significance.

Overview

Genetics has evolved beyond its traditional boundaries to become a fundamental part of biology and medicine. The Department reflects this pervasiveness with research interests encompassing several high-impact themes, including functional genomics and systems biology, developmental genetics, epigenetic inheritance, evolution and population genetics, microbial genetics, and cell biology.

Features

PhD Genetics students, from The University of Cambridge, in the Department will undertake three to four years of research under the supervision of one of our group leaders, where they will develop an original research question and address this through laboratory or computer-based research. 

Research students will develop skills in finding and assessing relevant primary literature, and produce written reviews of the literature throughout their degree and prior to the preparation of the PhD thesis.
