Our Master Classes are Genetics taster days that provide AS or A-level students with the opportunity to use scientific techniques and equipment typical of a modern genetics laboratory. The day also includes a tour of the University's world renowned Department of Genetics and the opportunity to talk with staff and students about their experiences.

Our Master Classes take place throughout the year and can arranged for a whole or half-day. More details of  GENIE developed activities and other evaluated resources can be found on our Virtual Genetics Education Centre.

For more information about our Master Classes please contact Dr Cas Kramer.
