Master's degree project in Genomics and Systems biology
In the course Master’s degree project in Genomics and Systems Biology, you will do a master's thesis. Under supervision, you will perform an independent project work corresponding to one semester of full-time study. Usually, you do the individual work within one of the ongoing research projects in the field of genomics and/or systems biology. The course is completed when you have written a scientific report and presented your work orally in a seminar at the end of the course.
The range of research in genomics and system biology is vast. Therefore, the individual project work can be done in different areas and deal with varying issues, such as general biology, environmental science, cell biology, biotechnology, medicine, mathematics, statistics, physics or computer science. Depending on your interests, the project work may contain several disciplines, which means that several supervisors and departments may need to be involved. In many projects, experiments are combined with more theoretical studies.
You have to look for supervisors and projects yourself, either at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, at another department within the same subject area or externally in companies or authorities. In order for you to be registered on the course, the project must be approved by the examiner. The project can be extended to 45 or 60 credits after agreement.
