Course content

Bioinformatics is a major growth area in research and industry; hence qualified bioinformaticians are in high demand. The MSc in Bioinformatics is a one-year full-time course for biological sciences graduates which will equip you with the theoretical and practical analytical skills necessary for a career in this multidisciplinary field.

The course comprises taught modules and guided research, and culminates in a four-month project placement in industry, a research institute or a University of Leicester research lab.

You will work on a Linux laptop on which you install and develop your own Bioinformatics toolkit. During the course this laptop is provided as a loan by the University of Leicester. Ownership of the laptop will be transferred free of charge to you on the successful completion of the course. Also, all students have access to the course server during the course.
