The Department for Genetics, Evolution & Environment (GEE) is a vibrant research department in a central London location. Our department brings together scientists with shared interests in genetics, bioinformatics, evolution and biodiversity. We use integrative approaches to understand biological systems from theoretical, molecular and systems perspectives.
The Department runs and contributes to full-time Taught Masters courses run over 12 months leading to an MSc. The Taught Masters Programme allows students to gather further specialised training before embarking on a career in research or elsewhere.
MRes & PhD Programmes
GEE offers research-intensive MRes programmes and PhD programmes. The Department carries out world class research on diverse topics and fosters an integrative approach to understanding biological systems at the genomic, functional and population levels. Research strengths include: biodiversity and environmental biology, biology of ageing, computational biology, evolutionary genetics, evolution and development, human genetics and human evolution, systems biology (see Research page). We have a very active research training community. There are usually > 100 postgraduate students working in the department for MRes and PhD research degrees. Studentships are offered by the Department through a number of postgraduate research programmes as well as individual studentships.
