In this Bioinformatics programme from University of Liverpool , you will be equipped with the background in biology, statistical analysis, and computing necessary to work with modern biological data from genomic, proteomic and metabolomic studies. You will be trained with an emphasis on hands-on practical experience, so that you can tackle your research project with confidence. You will be taught by internationally renowned scientists at a University with internationally excellent Research Centres, including the University of Liverpool Computational Biology Facility, the newly established Centre for Metabolomics, the Centre for Proteomics, and the Centre for Genomic Research.
Past graduates of the School of Life Sciences have continued their academic careers as research assistants or pursued further study leading to a PhD. Graduates have also developed careers in conservation or qualified to immediately go into industries. There is a demand currently for graduates with specialisations in science or computing to enter the teaching profession. Commercial sectors such as the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agriculture industries will be possible employers of graduates, especially with the anticipated increases in the use of next-generation sequencing and the corresponding data analysis that will be required.
Graduates with an MSc in Bioinformatics are well qualified to enter a wide range of employment. In the public sector, bioinformaticians are in demand in research institutes, government departments, the Health Service, forensic science and the Environment Agency. However, post-graduates in general, can find a career in management and human resources, where the skills obtained in the degree programme will be of considerable benefit.
