About

The joint Bioinformatics For Computational Genomics programme at the Politecnico Di Milano and Università degli Studi di Milano aims to give its graduates an adequate knowledge on the molecular basis of biological systems; the structure and function of biological molecules and how they participate in cellular processes; the technologies and platforms for the analysis of genomes. 

Overview

Therefore, the Bioinformatics For Computational Genomics programme at the Politecnico Di Milano includes activities providing in depth knowledge on:

  • the organization of information in the genome and the molecular and cellular processes at the basis of gene expression and its regulation
  • the experimental methods used for studying genes and their function in different model species, both prokaryotic and eukaryotic
  • the technologies employed in modern genomic research
  • methods and protocols of bioinformatic analysis in functional genomics studies
  • algorithmic, mathematical and statistical approaches underlying bioinformatic and genomic analysis tools
  • data base technologies for the storage and organization of the data
  • modelling and analysis techniques employed in systems biology for the study of interactions in complex biological systems.

Career Opportunities 

Graduates in BCG will thus be able to:

  • take part in the design and execution of large scale genomic analyses
  • identify and extract the biological meaning from the results obtained
  • design tools and protocols for the bioinformatic analysis of different types of experimental data autonomously
  • play a pivotal role in research groups focused on basic or applied genomic research
  • coordinate and supervise research projects and groups focused on bioinformatics and genomics
