Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships (XDF)

On-site courses

Relevant on-site courses in the UK and internationally.

Quantitative Genetics & Genome Analysis Masters Programmes

A suite of full-time taught study programmes at the University of Edinburgh starting in September 2018 and leading to either a Masters (MSc) degree (12 months) or a Diploma (9 months). The courses provide postgraduates with the knowledge and skills required to apply quantitative genetics theory to practical problems in both the biomedical and animals science industries and to undertake research in evolutionary genetics, animal breeding, human genetics and genome analysis.

The MRC/University of Edinburgh Cross-disciplinary Fellows are encouraged to "audit" relevant courses of interest but should contact the QGGA administrator (qgen@ed.ac.uk) before doing so.
