Master's programme in Bioinformatics
New Master's student 2019: Information (pdf)
The Bioinformatics programme combines research with training in current methods as well as the development of novel software tools. The programme makes extensive use of hands-on training.
The master's programme is organised by the Faculty of Sciences. The demand for qualified bioinformaticians still exceeds the supply. Graduates have a diverse set of employers to choose between, both in industry, health care and academia.
The first year includes the compulsory courses:
- BINP11 Bioinformatics and Sequence Analysis, 7.5 credits
- BINP16 Bioinformatics: Programming in Python, 7.5 credits
- BIOS13 Modelling Biological Systems, 7.5 credits
- BIOS14 Processing and Analysis of Biological Data, 7.5 credits
- BINP28 DNA Sequencing Informatics I, 7.5 credits
- BINP29 DNA Sequencing Informatics II, 7.5 credits
- The last period of the spring semester you can do an internship or a short research project, start your Master's degree project or take optional courses
The second year contains project and/or other optional courses i.e.
- BIOR59 Genetic Analysis I 7.5 credits and BIOR60 Genetic Analysis II 7.5 credits
- Research projects or applied work within bioinformatic
- Master's Degree Project of 30-60 credits
Courses corresponding to 120 credits, of which should encompass
- 60 cr. advanced level courses in Bioinformatics of which BINP11, BINP16, BIOS13, BIOS14, BINP28 and BINP29 are mandatory
- 30 cr. Degree project
- 30 cr. optional courses or continuation of Degree project
