The University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia, is launching a new two-year Master’s program in Applied Genetics by Research (Aquaculture) for international and national students. The program combines a coursework component with a research thesis. This innovative hybrid structure is unique in Australia as it embeds the necessary advanced and hands on discipline training integrated with tailored courses in quantitative and population genetics, reproductive biotechnologies, omics, applied statistics and bioinformatics, and analysis of breeding, genetic and genomic data.
Application for the first intake to start semester 1 (February), 2017 is now open. Further information about the program structure, admission requirements and career perspectives can be found at the University of the Sunshine Coast website.
