Nowadays we face an increasing demand on qualified professionals in private and public sector in the field of Applied Genetics. ISU, which is one of the regional leaders in genetics studies including the studies which is based on direct DNA analysis, offers a Master’s degree program in life sciences with an academic degree Master of Sciences in Applied Genetics. It is noteworthy that the Molecular Genetics laboratory of the university, in which direct DNA analysis was implemented 8 years ago, serves the program. Within the program, lectures are delivered by leading Georgian, European and American scientists in population and evolutionary genetics, microbiology, biochemistry and other fields. We provide students with a broad spectrum of optional subjects including GIS modelling, wild nature conservation and many others. The program is led by ISU professor Cort Anderson, who has served at ISU since 2015. The students are enabled to participate in exchange programs (Tempus, Erasmus Mundus) between ISU and the universities of the EU member states. The program has functioned since 2011, and its popularity has substantially increased for the last two years.
