The Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) co-organizes with the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and the University of Barcelona (UB) an inter-university Master's Degree in Plant Biology, Genomics and Biotechnology. Themain objective of this Master is to provide advanced knowledge on different plant biology disciplines, through content and subjects that are aligned with the forefront of research and applications in the Plant, AgBio, and Biotech sectors, and spanning from Agricultural Biotechnology to Plant Systems Biology. This is an official one-year master degree with a program of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System). As this Master receives students from all over the world, English is the language used during the courses.
CRAG researchers involved in the Master include:
Teresa Altabella, Albert Boronat, Narciso Campos, David Caparrós-Ruiz, Montse Martin and Marc Valls
Maria José Aranzana, Pere Arús, Martí Bernardo, Ana Caño-Delgado, Josep Ma. Casacuberta, María Coca, Iban Eduardo, Albert Ferrer, Igor Flórez, Jaume Garcia, Jordi Garcia-Mas, Jorge Gómez, Werner Howad, Maria Lois, Juan José Lopez-Moya, José Tomas Matus, Elena Monte, Jordi Moreno, Michela Osnato, Jordi Pérez-Gil, Marta Pujol, Manuel Rodríguez-Concepción, Ignacio Rubio-Somoza and Núria Sánchez Coll.
In addition, all CRAG Researchers are open to receive Master students for their Master Research Project. This research project starts around February and ends in July or September. Students can also carry out their Master Project in other public research institutions or in biotech companies. Thus, this Master represents an excellent platform to initiate a research career as a PhD student or to initiate a professional career in the private sector.

"Doing my Master’s Thesis in the CRAG has provided me with an excellent opportunity to meet world-leading experts in various areas of Plant Biology."
At CRAG I learnt basic skills and matured as a researcher. I hope I can stay in research thanks to the knowledge acquired here.
