Tuition & funding
The Graduate Diploma in Biotechnology and Genomics will give you a solid foundation in the theories, methods and applications of genomics, molecular genetics, protein biochemistry and bioinformatics. You’ll acquire an in-depth understanding of functional genomics, microbial biotechnology, and protein production for the pharmaceutical, agri-food and forestry industries. You will also learn about the development of genomic methods for industrial and environmental applications. The program emphasizes hands-on experience and training with state-of-the-art genomic and biotechnology research equipment. Thanks to small class sizes and our research component you will be prepared to enter the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries or to pursue further graduate studies.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 30 credits.
Please see the Biology Courses page for course descriptions.

Priority will be given to complete applications submitted by the deadline. In some cases, programs may continue to accept applications as long as there is space available.
International students: Considering the waiting period involved in meeting the entry requirements to Canada and Quebec, we strongly encourage international applicants to apply early and submit supporting documents prior to the deadline.
Tuition and fees of the program may depend on your student status, among other key factors. Estimate these costs based on the most common situations.
Funding packages are generally available for students in thesis-based programs. Course-based students may be eligible for a number of donor awards, and may consult with their department for program-specific opportunities.
Work closely with a faculty mentor and expand your knowledge of modern research methodologies while developing advanced expertise in the field of biology.
