UCL Genetics Institute
Our research is both fundamental and applied, and we believe there does not need to be a divide between the two. Important Science is by definition fundamental, and is also likely to have downstream applications.
We develop computational tools and apply them to large genetic datasets to address questions ranging from the origin and evolution of anatomically modern humans, the genetic determinants of various human diseases, improvement of crop varieties to antibiotic resistance in bacteria.
UGI staff teach on various undergraduate programs, including the Genetics pathway that is available for BSc and MSci degrees in Biological Sciences.
Masters level training is offered through our MSc in Human Genetics Disease. Our PhD students are funded through a diverse range of programmes.
