About

The Bioinformatics programme from Lund University is a broad subject in which biology, medicine, computer science and statistics intertwine.  

Overview

The Bioinformatics programme from Lund University trains students from different fields in the computational analysis of biological data. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data. It combines biology, computer science and statistics to analyze this data.

New technologies in genomics and proteomics have revolutionized modern research in biology and medicine during the past decade. Scientific discovery now relies heavily on efficient handling and analysis of the enormous amount of data generated from wet lab experiments.
