With UQ's one -year Graduate Diploma in Molecular Biology program, you can build practical skills as you experience laboratory techniques such as electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, endonuclease mapping, fluorescent reporters and expression vectors.
You'll develop an advanced knowledge of the structure and function of genes and the proteins they encode. Your study will cover genome sequencing, recombinant DNA technology and macromolecular structure determination. Through laboratory practicals, workshops, projects and directed study, you'll receive training in bioinformatics, molecular genetics, biomolecular structure and function, and immunology.
You'll also be able to write your own research proposal and carry out a project as part of your course choices.
Plus you'll graduate with the high-level knowledge and skills to achieve your goals in modern molecular biology research or industry practice.
Postgraduate study can take you anywhere. Here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
