Education: New Masters Program in Bioinformatics at Georgetown University, Washington D.C.
Submitted by Nathan Edwards; posted on Thursday, May 01, 2008
Master of Science Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology - Bioinformatics Track at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington D.C.

This one-year M.S. degree program has an interdisciplinary curriculum covering both biomedical and computational sciences. Built upon the unique research strengths and bioinformatics infrastructure at the Protein Information Resource (PIR) and Georgetown University, the curriculum emphasizes bioinformatics of genomics, proteomics and systems biology. With computer-lab based courses and a 16-week bioinformatics internship, students will gain hands-on experience in applying bioinformatics as an integral approach to biomedical research, from basic molecular sequence analysis to advanced high-throughput omics data analysis.

Bioinformatics is fundamental to the modern day study of biology and is essential to 21st century biomedical research. This program is designed for students who would like to gain knowledge and experience in both Biochemistry/Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics. With bioscience and computing skills, the graduates are equipped to play a key role in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teams. Graduates may pursue further study towards a PhD, MD, MBA or law degree or pursue a career in industry, government or academia as a bioinformatics professional.
