I'm in my 3rd year of the Forensic Science degree in Glamorgan and i want to eventually work as a DNA analyst. I'm applying for masters courses now, and wondering if any are particularly good or is actually doing any of them?

A lecturer of mine who works for the FSS has recommended that i go for a more general biology course, but i don't really know what to look for that's relevant to DNA analysis.

any suggestions would be great!

Thanks!

Well, define DNA analysis? I mean, are you talking about looking for SNPs for crop development? Medical diagnostics? Characterising the human genome?

Your lecturer is right to be honest - any genetics degree will teach you the basic tools of DNA extraction / sequencing / BLAST searching / alignment etc

The genetics Masters at Leicester wouldn't be a bad one to look at.
