Program Description

Master of Science in Omics

University of Southern Denmark

This MSc programme in Omics is offered at SDC in Beijing, China.
This MSc full degree programme in Omics is offered in English only.

The Master’s degree in Omics is a unique educational programme. The study of Omics concerns research in the post-genomic area of bioscience where data from public available databases are crucial in the designing of experiments and the interpretation of the attained data.

The Omics approach is based on a holistic view of research combining hypothesis based research with data and technology based research. Omics is an objective investigation which seeks to describe the full situation in the chosen biological system and is therefore in contrast with the traditional reductionistical view which is applied in biochemistry, molecular biology etc. Omics encompass several different approaches such as proteomics, transcriptomics, interatomics, and metabolomics. For instance, proteomics concerns the study of (potentially) all expressed proteins in a given biological system.

The Master’s degree in Omics is provided in close collaboration with SDU, AU, DTU, KU and also includes CAS (Chinese Academy of Sciences) and GUCAS (Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Science) in collaboration across the country boarders of China and Denmark, the Sino Danish Centre for Education and Research (SDC).

Programme structure

A range of Bachelor degrees will supply the necessary knowledge within some, but not all, of the elements of the Omics programme.

The programme will therefore start with an individual Omics brush-up (4 ECTS) to ensure that you possess the needed knowledge. This module will be planned along with a lecturer to enhance the qualifications within selected areas.

The course Personalised Track (8 ECTS) also emphasizes a continuing individual guidance which seeks to ensure cohesiveness and expand knowledge and competences in relation to the courses of the programme.
