Months of entry
Bioinformatics is a branch of the life sciences that focus on analysing and integrating big data acquired in biomedical experimentation.
Over the last couple of years '-omics' technologies have transformed healthcare practice, biomedical research and industry, and there is a shortage of biomedical graduates with bioinformatics training in the advanced healthcare sector.
Our programme will provide you with essential skills in both molecular and computational techniques. You will learn how to design and perform experiments, and efficiently analyse next-generation sequencing data. You will acquired research data mining skills for Biological Sciences, Transcriptomics, Genomics, Proteomics and Metagenomics.
It will equip you for careers in the private (e.g. pharmaceutical, biotechnology or food industry, forensic/veterinary laboratories) or public (e.g. academia, NHS) sectors.
