Ensure you have sufficient background to start a thesis project. Specific requirements (e.g. mandatory courses) will depend on the study program that you follow. If Genetics is not on the pre-approved list of Chair Groups of your study, a standard e-mail to the Exam Committee requesting for approval is required. Our Education Coordinator can advise you if needed.
In general, basic knowledge of genetics and molecular methods, such as taught in:
| Fundamentals of Genetics and Molecular Biology
| Molecular and Evolutionary Ecology
| Genetic Analysis Trends and Concepts
is recommended before starting a Genetics thesis. Other routes are possible, if in doubt, please contact the supervisor of your intended project, or Margreet Bruins.
