About

This Mathematical Sciences for Biomedical Data and Biophysics programme offered by Université Côte d'Azur will provide prospective individuals with the opportunity to learn how to precisely understand a biological question, conceptualize biological phenomena with a mathematical model integrating observational data and find an appropriate way to solve it.

Overview

Computational biology is a multidisciplinary approach addressing and solving current problems in biology and medicine using methodologies stemming from mathematics, physical sciences and computer science. 

Objectives

During the Mathematical Sciences for Biomedical Data and Biophysics programme offered by Université Côte d'Azur, students will be taught relevant theoretical and methodological concepts in areas ranging from:

  • Mathematical and computational methods in computational biology and bioinformatics
  • Modelling approaches to relevant to study biochemical and biophysical processes in cells and tissues
  • Analysis and interpretation of large datasets coming from high-throughput technologies ( “omics” data, images, signals, measurements), in particular, single-cell data
  • Fundamental aspects of cell biology
  • Biology of cancer and ageing

In short, prospective students will learn to tackle computational biology problems in a scientific, evidence-based manner as well as have the opportunity to gain experience working in a true multidisciplinary mindset.

Careers

  • Ph. D programs in bioinformatics, biophysics, systems biology
  • Research Engineer in private R&D sector of pharma companies, software companies, hospitals, CRO, Diagnosis companies, whose activities address: Human genomics, Personalized and precision medicine, Regenerative medicine, Single cell data analysis, Cancer systems biology, Metagenomics, Bioengineering, Synthetic biology, Bioimaging

Academic requirements

GPA admission requirements GPA Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. Usually a GPA scales between 1.0 and 4.0, however different countries and universities can have different grading systems.
GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
GMAT admission requirements GMAT The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a test intended to assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA. GMAT contains 4 sections - Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal. The score has a range from 200 - 800.

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at desiganated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
PTE Academic admission requirements PTE Academic PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) is a language test that enables students to demonstrate their writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills when applying to study in English. The score refers to a total score which ranges between 10 and 90.
