Master's program
Program's main objective
The goal of this research and training program is to give students the abilities and information required to use the vast amounts of biological data that are collected during biological experiments, such as diverse "omics" studies, pharmacological and epidemiological investigations, and biological surveys.

Applied bioinformatics also makes use of statistical and machine learning methods. Students get comprehensive understanding in the areas of contemporary molecular biology, genetics, and associated biological fields.
Who is this program intended for?
Graduates with a bachelor's degree who have experience in the biological and computer sciences, such as molecular biology, genetics, immunology, programming, coding, statistics, mathematics and related subjects.
