This programme consists of two 20-week research projects and two taught advanced courses, normally in plant molecular biology and plant biotechnology.
The main part of the degree is the two extensive research projects, which are based in the laboratories of Plant Science Group staff. Projects will be selected through discussion with individual staff members and will be focused on their areas of research. The projects are chosen to reflect students' interests and the skills they wish to acquire and are of sufficient duration to enable real scientific progress to be made.
