Bioinformatics, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #651 (QS) ,
Bioinformatics, known as the application of Information Technologies to the resolution of problems in life sciences, is a key area in this task, which has been steadily developing throughout the years, both academically and at market level (industrial or services). 


The sequencing process of the human genome constituted a very significant landmark in the history of science during the last century. Having attained this goal, the focus has been placed on the capacity to make the data profitable, extracting new forms of knowledge, in order to better understand the molecular and cellular phenomena, while improving the medical and therapeutic diagnosis processes and the techniques used in Biotechnology.
