If you are a detailed-oriented health and science graduate driven to better understand the genetic contributions to disease, the applications of genomics, and you are keen to start or build on a career in a highly evolving field, our new Graduate Certificate of Applied Genomics may be for you.

With continued improvements in DNA sequencing technology, genomic approaches to the diagnosis and understanding of disease are becoming the new standard in the field.

This course will provide training in genetics, genomics, and associated technologies, with a focus on understanding the genetic basis of disease.


The Graduate Certificate of Applied Genomics is a future-focused course that provides expert training in areas of genetics, genomics, and biotechnology, developing graduates and upskilling professionals to meet the growing demand for expertise in these areas.

The course builds knowledge in this emerging area, and does not require a background in genetics or molecular biology.

You will study the application of genomics in different contexts and, in addition to superb professional outcomes, the course is a pathway to the Master of Genome Analytics.
