Introduction

The Master's Degree Programme in Bioinformatics is from 2017 merged into the new Master's Degree Programme in Biomedical Technology. The new programme has three options for specialization: molecular biology, cell technology adn bioinformatics.

Bioinformatics applies methods of computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics, and statistics to biological data from e.g. DNA, RNA or proteins. Bioinformatics is needed in modern biotechnological, biological and biomedical research and development, especially when dealing with large data sets produced by current high-throughput measurement techniques.

The MSc programme in bioinformatics is taught entirely in English, and it is two years in duration, with an extent of 120 ECTS credits. The curriculum contains a module of methodological studies including computer science, mathematics and biology, an advanced module with in-depth focus on the methods and applications of bioinformatics. The advanced module contains the MSc thesis of 40 ECTS.

The degree provides you with skills you can utilize as a bioinformatician or biological data analyst and qualifies you to work in industry or continue your studies at the doctoral level.
