Bioinformatics is an extremely active, interdisciplinary field of research. As a student in the Bioinformatics programme at the University of Copenhagen, you will learn the fundamentals of bioinformatics, which include sequence analysis, protein and RNA structural analysis, genomics, phylogenetics, analysis of high-throughput data, machine learning methods, etc. You specialize within the fields of Computational Biology or Computer Science.
- You will learn to control situations at work and in developments that are complex, unpredictable and require new solutions
- You will learn to individually initiate and complete collaborations and take professional responsibility
- You will learn to find, extract, interpret and evaluate large dataset in complex biological processes
- You will learn to individually take responsibility for your own scientific evolution and specialization
Many MSc graduates in bioinformatics find employment in biotech companies. Many of our graduates so far have continued on to a PhD programme.
