Newcastle University

Genetics is the study of how DNA is transmitted between generations. Also how it is decoded to determine our individual characteristics.

You’ll learn about how:

  • hereditary material passes on genetic information from one generation to the next
  • genes are controlled and how they, in turn, control development
  • mutations can lead to a wide range of medical diseases

Study with us and you’ll:

  • develop scientific and experimental skills through practical work in our biomedical labs
  • boost your CV through work experience here at the University
  • learn from experts and graduate with the latest knowledge of human health and disease – the University’s Institute of Genetic Medicine feeds into our degrees
