            In choosing to study the Genetics and Biochemistry Degree with the integrated year in industry at Aberystwyth University you will work at the forefront of this exciting discipline. By undertaking a year in industry, you will develop the skills and knowledge that employers are desperately seeking. Genetics has almost limitless potential to help understand and treat genetic disease and develop new medicines. Additionally, you will explore genetically modified organisms and evaluate their benefit to humankind. Building upon a foundation that includes key genetics and biochemistry understanding you will soon start to specialise into genetics, human genetics, gene expression, pharmacology, and data handling. Upon successful completion of the Genetics and Biochemistry Degree you will have the skills and attributes necessary for diverse careers that include biomedicine, forensic science, DNA profiling, clinical cytogenetics, genetic counselling, and food production amongst others.
