Genetics and genomics is developing so rapidly that the printing of organs could make organ donation obsolete. Our Biological Sciences (Genetics and Genomics) degree blends molecular, genetic, genomic and broader biological studies. You will have the flexibility to tailor the course to suit you. You can choose modules within the course to focus on animals, humans or cells. On this course you will: -work with data from molecular lab techniques -handle and analyse genomes -develop the skills bioscientists need for this new era of genomics and big data. We have a reputation for outstanding research work. The Oxford area is an important centre for the bioscience industry. We have world class research centres like the Nuffield and Churchill hospitals on our doorstep. So you can improve your employability with active engagement in the local bioscience sector. And we are home to the Oxford Brookes Student Bioinnovation Hub, an initiative to enhance engagement with the Life Sciences industry.
Assessment methods include essays, reviews, laboratory/field notebooks, scientific reports, posters, professional reports, grant applications and oral presentations. All these activities develop Digital and Information literacy. Reflective learning is encouraged through use of self, peer and staff formative feedback on assignments, group work and project work, and reflective diaries (developing Critical self-awareness and personal literacy).
