General presentation The Master of Science in Molecular Life Sciences is intended for students who are curious, motivated, and enthusiastic about the exploration of life through the application of methods in experimental biology.

The Master program offers in-depth training in the areas of molecular genetics, genomics, cell and developmental biology. We propose in particular specialised courses on the interactions of molecules within networks that control the life of micro-organisms, plants, animals and man. Considerable attention is dedicated to the learning and application of advanced techniques in genome sequencing and annotation. The course also includes instruction in scientific writing.

The Universities of Geneva and Lausanne have joined forces to offer a specialised curriculum in Bioinformatics. These students will follow the same compulsory courses as other students taking the MSc in Molecular Life Sciences while their optional courses will focus on Bioinformatics.

Students with a particular interest in Microbiology or Integrative Biology will follow optional courses on this subject to obtain the chosen specialisation.
