Biotechnology and Bioinformatics at Brandeis University organizations are increasingly viewing bioinformatics as an integral part of their research processes.


As Bioinformatics at Brandeis University industries seek to make use of vast amounts of genomic data and produce more complex and accurate biological models, they are relying more and more on bioinformatics’ mathematical, statistical and computational methods.

Learning outcomes

Designed for working professionals looking to advance their careers along with their educational goals, our online MS in Bioinformatics stands apart because it equips students to:

  • Develop bioinformatics tools through modeling, prediction and optimization.
  • Develop scripts and programs to manipulate data and solve bioinformatics problems.
  • Apply methods of statistical genetics to detect disease in experimental and human populations.


Brandeis University is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) Commission on Institutions of Higher Education reaffirmed Brandeis University’s accreditation in fall 2006.

The NEASC Commission commended GPS on the quality of its online programs, on the uniform content and quality between online and classroom-based courses of the same course title, and on the attention given to advising and support for students enrolled in online courses.

Many online degrees at other institutions lack accreditation. We’re proud to say that all programs at Brandeis Graduate Professional Studies are accredited.
