In recent years, improvements in the research tools used in molecular biology, bioinformatics and genetics have given rise to formidable advances in plant research. Rapid progress is being made in crop breeding improvement with the aim of achieving more sustainable and healthier food production systems, as well as in the biotechnological production of drugs and other active compounds with technological applications in the fields of bio-health, farming, renewable energy and the materials industry. Identifying and conserving the genetic diversity of plants are basic steps towards assuring the future sustainable development of all these applications, which are creating demand for specialised research and development personnel. The master's degree is organised jointly by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, the Universitat de Barcelona and the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics.
