Studying Genetics in Canada
Students studying genetics study biochemistry, microbiology, and molecular biology, which are designed to provide critical analysis of scientific concepts. Students can then start to specialize in human, animal, plant, or microbial genetics, and courses are available for all disciplines. Related courses such as biostatistics, epidemiology (for population genetics), oncology, and cell biology (for DNA and molecular studies) are typical. Advanced genetics-specific courses include genomics, human cytogenetics, immunogenetics, ethics of genetics, and cancer genetics. Directed studies courses are available to all genetics students so they can pursue independent study.
Courses in laboratory techniques are necessary for all genetics students. They are expected to be relatively proficient in techniques such as aseptic technique, tissue culture, DNA extraction, gel electophoresis, and the operation of various common pieces of laboratory equipment.
Seminars in recent advances in genetics are offered several times a semester at most schools. As part of their graduate-level training, students are expected to participate in these seminars, and give several of their own over the course of their own research.
