The two-year track Green Life Sciences in the Biological Sciences Master’s programme is a research-oriented programme that focuses on studying plants and their interactions with the environment at the molecular level. The study programme gives you the opportunity to combine fundamental and applied training in molecular biology, chemical ecology, ecogenomics, biotechnology, plant breeding, phytopathology, pest control, cell and population biology. This enables you to develop an integrated view of the functioning of plants and to gain skills required for modern research.

Is Green Life Sciences at the UvA the study for you?

It is, if you:

are interested in how organisms function at a genetic, biochemical and cellular level and how this translates to their ecology, evolution and usage. want to learn how plants cope with abiotic stress such as drought or high salt levels in the soil, which is an increasing problem in agriculture. want to investigate how pathogens and plagues (insects, mites) affect the plants’ immune system. want to study how outbreaks of pests can be predicted and circumvented, and how natural enemies can be used for pest control. want to research the underlying mechanisms that lead to an enormous diversity of inflorescence and flower architectures in nature, which is in sharp contrast with the high conservation of gene and genome sequences. are interested in the role of epigenetic mechanisms and chromatin structure in gene/genome regulation. want to become an independent researcher by taking part in internships with internationally renowned scientists. have the ambition to get down to...
