The aim of the course is to enable students to develop a range of research skills in biological and biochemical areas as well as equip them with core mathematical, data analysis and generic professional skills that are necessary for bioscience research in the coming decades. At York, the White Rose Partnership brings together researchers from the Departments of Biology and Chemistry spanning different research centres (BPSI, CII, CNAP, JBU, YCCS, YESI, and YSBL). The projects offered are aligned with the BBSRC strategic priorities in Food Security, Bioenergy and Industrial Technology and World Class Bioscience.
