In Semester 2, students build on the knowledge acquired in Semester 1 by learning how statistical methods are applied to the analysis of genetic data. All students also select one of the following specialist areas for in-depth study:
Animal Breeding and Genetics
Human Complex Trait Genetics
Research Project Proposal
This course introduces students to the key elements of writing the scientific section of a grant proposal. The proposal will be based on the forthcoming 3-month MSc research project. Students will review the scientific literature related to the project, assess suitable methods, familiarise themselves with the relevant dataset, and perform appropriate preliminary analyses. Projects can be selected from a range of topics reflecting the subjects studied. Students will have several meetings with their supervisor until the proposal is submitted. Students will also give a presentation on their proposal.
