Its focus is to convey skills and competencies from the natural sciences and information technology while also integrating academic research as well. The study program consists of four main areas: Informatics and Mathematics for Natural Scientists; Basic Life Science Informatics; Chemoinformatics and Computer-Aided Design of Active Ingredients; and The Biology of Cell and System Biology.
Within these areas, topics are addressed such as biomedical data base systems, data mining, and machine learning, statistical genetics, chemoinformatics, medical imaging, computer-aided disease modeling, algorithmic bioinformatics and system biology. The practical relevance of the Life Science Informatics programme of the University of Bonn is assured by its high percentage of research laboratory modules, which are embedded in both basic and applied research at participating Fraunhofer Institutes for Applied Information Technology (FIT) and for Algorithms and Scientific Computing (SCAI) in collaboration with regional industrial enterprises.
