Overview

The Department of Biology and Biotechnology offers a Course for a Master Degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics. This 2-year second level degree (Biology class) is an intensive, full-time graduate program entirely taught in English and designed for graduates at the BA level who are seeking a qualification in advanced areas of Biology, with special attention to Molecular Biology, Genetics, and Biochemistry. Graduates will acquire a strong theoretical and methodological background relevant to both basic and applied aspects of these disciplines.

For details please contact the Admission Office (admission@unipv.it)

The Master Degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics offers two tracks:

  • Molecular Life Sciences (MLS): designed around the needs and requirements of students who want to acquire a strong theoretical and methodological background relevant to both basic and applied aspects of Biology, with special attention to Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cell Biology and Microbiology. This curriculum is characterized by a strong practical component (hands-on) constituted by an internship in a research laboratory carried out under the supervision of a faculty member.
  • Molecular and Digital Biology (MDB): focused on the analysis and integration of biological data generated by applying the high-throughput approaches that characterize modern “omics” techniques. This curriculum has been activated in response to the development of high-throughput technologies dedicated to genome analyses and to the growing request of Biologists specialised in their application and the analysis.
