In modern biology, large and complex data sets are being generated at an incredible pace. The types of data include DNA sequences, protein structures, mass spectrometry and large-scale networks. Bioinformatics combines biology, computer science, mathematics and statistics to analyse and interpret this big data. Due to the data avalanche in biology, ecology, biotechnology, genetics, pharmacy and medicine, bioinformatics experts are in high demand.
The programme provides you with a strong theoretical background in each of the disciplines. In addition, you will use computer programming and machine learning as well as existing bioinformatics pipelines to study biological, biomedical and biotechnological systems under the guidance of top researchers in bioinformatics. The combination of theoretical background and applied skills allows you to make informed choices for data analysis methodologies.Strengths:
