Molecular Biology and Genetics

Follow-up Master's degree in full-time form. The language of instruction is Czech.

The programme can be studied only as a single subject.

What will you learn?

The Master's follow-up program Molecular Biology and Genetics deepens the basic knowledge of the areas of genetics and molecular biology that students have acquired during the Bachelor's degree program. It is one of the main MA programs in the field of Biology, characterized by the persistent high interest of students from MU and other universities in the Czech Republic. During the Master's degree, students extend their knowledge of molecular biology prokaryotes, eukaryotes, viruses, plant genetics, animal genetics and human genetics. Significant transferable experience as well as very specific theoretical and practical expertise are gained by students during the two-year master's thesis, which includes work with specialized information (searching, sorting, preparation of expert text) and extensive experimental activities, adoption of specific methodologies, evaluation, critical discussion and presentation of results. At regular seminars during their studies graduates acquire the skills of professional discussion and communication, presentation of their work and critical thinking.

“Genes are responsible for everything.”

The aim of the Master's degree program in Molecular Biology and Genetics is to provide graduates with information and experience that will guarantee their high adaptability in various areas of biological research and practical applications where molecular biological approaches to the problem are applied. The graduates find good use especially at the institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, laboratories and departmental research institutes, especially in the fields of health, veterinary medicine, agriculture, pharmacy, environmental protection and commercial diagnostic and forensic laboratories. Graduates are thus able to independently conduct research and development activities in various fields of experimental biology, including conducting research project teams.

Practical training
