Teaching and Rotations
The first year of the 4-year GMS programme comprises a taught term and up to 3 rotations in different research groups. Teaching topics span genome biology, statistics and bioinformatics in a mix of lab techniques and computational work.
Over 40 leading Oxford academics are associated with the GMS programme with research encompassing our diverse themed areas of genomics. Rotations give valuable exposure to different research topics and environments before deciding on a final DPhil project and supervisor.
