Full DPhil in Chromosome and Developmental Biology course information (University of Oxford admissions website)
This four-year graduate programme in chromosome and developmental biology leads to the DPhil degree (PhD). Participating laboratories are international leaders in the fields of chromosome regulation through the mitotic and meiotic cell cycle, the regulation of genome stability and mechanisms of DNA repair, gene/genome regulation in development, including mechanism of transcription, the role of chromatin, nuclear organisation and epigenetic pathways, RNA biogenesis and function (including non-coding RNA), regulating cell fate and pattern formation (including signalling mechanisms and stem cell biology).
The programme provides training in a wide range of biochemical, genetic and cell biological approaches specifically tailored for research into chromosome and developmental biology. A clear priority is to provide students with training and supporting infrastructure to apply advanced biological imaging/super resolution microscopy, high-throughput sequencing method (and computational genomics for data analysis), advanced proteomics, and state of the art genome engineering.
