About Bioinformatics at University of Nottingham

Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 taught credits. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow students to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with their supervisor. Candidates should have at least a lower second class honours degree in a relevant topic.

The MRes in Bioinformatics involves the use of computational methods to study molecular evolution using sequence data now available in online databases. Research areas within which projects are available include: the use of secondary structure models to investigate evolutionary relationships in the molluscs; evolution of mobile DNAs; studies on the evolution of spider silk gene families; codon usage in yeast; recombination in AIDS viruses; the application of molecular clocks to microbial sequences, in particular the investigation of rate variation in foraminifera lineages and the estimation of the age of viral radiations.
