Statement on Part II Genetics teaching for 2021-2022

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, we have had to make some changes to the programme in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation. Situations and information is changing all the time. Currently, 2021/22 will:

All lectures and non-teaching sessions (such as journal criticism, data/problem handling, Social Aspects of Genetics/SAG discussions) will be delivered in-person with all material also available online.

Your Lent Term Research Project will allow you to achieve the same learning outcomes. However, these will be reconfigured to allow for social distancing and availability of space. More details regarding Projects will be available in the Michaelmas Term.

Submitted course work requirements  (Literature Review and Project Report for single subject Genetics students, and dissertation for BBS students)  will not be changed.

Full details of how the course will be run will be provided later in the summer via the course handbook and Moodle teaching site.
