Course content

This course focuses on the interaction between bioinformatics techniques and "cutting edge" molecular methods to give you an insight into the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of disease. It is most appropriate for those wishing to study the impact and utility of bioinformatics tools in molecular medicine. The project modules will enable you to understand the requirements and rigours of project design, execution and publication of a project within this discipline.

The MSc is suitable for newly qualified graduates, those employed in related work and those with medical qualifications. It is important that prospective students are comfortable with the use of web-based computing tools but programming skills are not required as this is a course designed for end-users, not developers of the technology.
