Program Description

MRes Molecular Bioscience

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University

This programme provides a thorough understanding of key approaches for studying biological processes at the molecular level. It takes advantage of Xi’an Jiaotong- Liverpool University’s advanced English-language capabilities, distinctive international features, and state-of-the-art research facilities. The course covers biotechnology- related topics such as molecular biology, protein biochemistry and drug discovery, as well as post-genomic biology (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and bioimaging), and bioinformatics (e.g. acquisition and statistical analysis of large-scale biodata).

It also places a major emphasis on providing project management skills. After these taught modules, the programme focuses on an in-depth research project and specialised dissertation. Customized individual learning plans are designed for students,in keeping with their backgrounds and career aspirations. Successful completion of the programme leads to the award of an MRes degree from the University of Liverpool, UK.

The Department of Biological Sciences at XJTLU has internationally-respected investigators in this field of research with excellent teaching and laboratory infrastructure. Thus, students have the opportunity to carry out world class research in a dynamic, transnational environment.
