Genetics

General information about the course

Full-time second-cycle studies in genetics offered by the University of Łódź are the only studies of this type in Poland. They provide solid and detailed knowledge of cytogenetics and molecular genetics of humans as well as the structures and functions of nucleid acids in humans, animals and plants. A large number of practical classes allow developing important skills  including: identification and analysis of the structure of  human, animal, plant and bacterial genomes and using data from molecular genetics in biology, biochemistry, evolution science, biogeography and environmental protection.

Graduates will belong to the elite of specialists in the field, not only in Poland. They will be able to find employment in:

  • scientific research facilities connected with the protection of health and natural environment
  • plant cultivation and animal breeding centres
  • forensic medicine laboratories

 

A graduate will also be able to work as an expert in the field of genetics in different institutions such as hospitals, clinics, scientific research and diagnostic facilities, also as a teacher after completing an appropriate course. Moreover, graduates can continue the studies on the third level conducted at the Faculty of Biology and Environmental Protection and related faculties.

 

Basic aims of the study

  • acquiring a broad range of knowledge on human cytogenetics and molecular genetics
  • acquiring knowledge of biochemical processes connected with the function of animal, plant and bacterial genomes
  • developing skills in identifying and analysing the structure of a human, animal, plant and bacterial genome
  • developing a skill of using molecular genetics data in biology, biochemistry, evolution science, biogeography and environmental protection.

 

Rules of recruitment, full-time second-cycle studies in genetics, academic year 2014-2015
