Genetics and Evolution BSc (Hons)

Genetics and evolution lie at the heart of biology. Evolutionary principles give us an understanding of health and disease and how life may change in the future. The number of organisms that have been genome sequenced allows deeper probing of Darwin’s ideas – which have consequences in medicine, crop production, forensic analysis and zoo breeding.
