Ireland

The National University of Ireland Maynooth set up a four-year Bachelor's course in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics two years ago.

University College Dublin offers a 4-year PhD program in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology. This program encourages a mix of wet-lab and programming work, as well as an industrial placement scheme to promote experience outside the university setting.
