Department of Genetics

The Department of Genetics hosts researchers across 15research groups. As summarised below, our research portfolio covers a wide range of interests and model systems, all centred round the application of genetics approaches to understanding fundamental questions in modern biology.

The post-genomic era has stimulated the use of high-throughput techniques for data generation. The Department is at the forefront of utilising such techniques, including functional and computational genomics, bioinformatics, and genetic databases, to understand and quantify genomic processes in both invertebrate and vertebrate cells.
