Master in Biology, option Genetics, Development & Evolution (GDE)
The Master Program in Genetics, Development and Evolution aims at providing an up-to-date knowledge in scientific approaches that integrate molecular and cell biology to genetics, bioinformatics and zoology.
Both experimental training and the teaching courses are designed to promote the development of problem-solving, self-educational and communication skills as well as creativity and imagination in research.
The students will have access to most recent laboratory technologies; thanks to the feedback provided by advanced scientists they will learn how to analyze and evaluate their experimental results, how to present their research project in a dynamic way. A strong emphasis is also given in this program on the critical discussion of primary scientific literature.
The Master Program in Genetics, Development and Evolution is specially appropriate for students who wish to continue their studies in the frame of the International PhD program in Basic and Applied Molecular Life Sciences or anticipate careers in the health and life sciences industry, in clinical research laboratories, in governmental health offices, in scientific journalism, or in scientific museums.Details and application procedure
Master in Biology, option Biodiversity & Systematics
The department also proposes a Master in Biology option Biodiversity and Systematics, in collaboration with the Unit of Microbiology, the Museum of Natural History and the Conservatory and Botanical Garden of the City of Geneva.
The aim of this master program is to provide a solid education to undertake a master research in various fields of evolutionary sciences, such as the study of biodiversity, phylogeny, evolutionary genetics, population genetics, biogeography and taxonomy. A wide range of taxonomic groups are studied, from bacteria and protists to plants and animals, including humans.Details and application procedure
