Master Program in Biomedical Genomics (1 Year)
Starting in August 2009 at Södertörn University, Stockholm (Huddinge), Sweden
The availability of complete genome sequences of an increasing number of species is having a major impact on novel biomedical approaches to human disease. Biomedical sciences and animal model system-based research will thus be of high significance for future human medicine.
The international Biomedical Genomics Master course is a collaboration between the School of Life Sciences at Södertörn University and the Karolinska Institute Medical University, to cover biological and medical aspects of genome sequence, gene expression and function in development, physiology and disease.
This unique biomedical Master course covers modern approaches to couple genes to diseases, and vice versa, e.g. translating genome structure and sequence into
epigenetic regulation and gene function in cells, tissues and organs throughout animal development and in physiology.
The course content is strongly based on animal model systems, e.g. D. rerio, C. elegans, and D. melanogaster. All courses are in English.
Applications are accepted now, until April 15, 2009. Applications after April 15 are accepted on a space availability basis. For application documents and information material please email to: Per Kylsten
