Genomics and Proteomics
What will you learn?
The aim of the Genomics and Proteomics program is to train top-class specialists in these subjects. Students will acquire extensive and in-depth knowledge about the structure and function of the genome at all basic levels of living systems ( i.e., the viral genome, the genome of bacteria, protozoa, fungi and yeasts, algae, higher plants, animals and human genome in more detail). They will deepen their knowledge and skills in basic biological disciplines (especially genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, biostatistics, physiology of organisms), in biochemistry and proteomics (general biochemistry, enzymology, biochemical proteomic methods) and in biophysics (biophysical methods). In addition to the theoretical principles of the discipline, students are also closely acquainted with performing basic and advanced methods used in various disciplines. Graduates of this field of study will find jobs in various fields: particularly in research focused on the analysis of genomes (basic research as well as applied research), in bioinformatics (including evolutionary aspects), in the field of molecular medicine (cancer, familial and hereditary diseases, gene therapy), in genetic engineering of microorganisms, plants, and animals, in the development of new biotechnologies, in pharmacogenomics, and in analyzing the proteome of individual groups of organisms, including humans.
Graduates of this doctorate program are qualified to run a research activities at research institutions and biotech companies, and teach at universities. They will find jobs in various fields, particularly in research focused on the analysis of genomes (basic research as well as applied research), on bioinformatics, molecular medicine, genetic engineering of microorganisms, plants, and animals, on the development of new biotechnologies, and on the analysis of the proteome of individual groups of organisms. In wider sense, they can conduct research and research-related activities like experimental work, project management, etc.
The admission interview is usually in an online form and consists of three parts:
1) expert interview – checking expertise background and motivation (max. 100 points),
2) Language part – check of communication skills in English, interview and expert discussion is in English (max. 100 points),
3) Formal criteria will include assessment of previous education and practice (based on a master diploma and reference letter (max. 100 points).More information about admission process for international applicants in general can be found here.
Date of the entrance exam
The applicants will receive information about the entrance exam by e-mail usually at least 10 days before the exam.
Please, always check your e-mails, including spam folders.
Conditions of admission
To be admitted, a candidate must obtain a minimum of 180 points, i.e. a minimum of 60 points in each section.
Successful applicants are informed of their acceptance by e-mail and subsequently receive an invitation to the enrolment.
The capacity of a given programme is not fixed; students are admitted based on a decision by the Doctoral Board after assessing their aptitude for study and motivation.
