    Education: University of Birmingham has launched the online MSc Bioinformatics (Sponsored Content)
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Tuesday, October 12, 2021


    Bioinformatics is a diverse and exciting field. Best described as data science for the life sciences, it uses computational approaches to extract meaningful information from complex data sets, providing novel insights in biological, clinical and environmental science. This rapidly-growing area of science is driving new discoveries for today's data-driven health and life science industries.

    To meet the growing demand for such expertise, the University of Birmingham has launched an innovative new programme – the Online MSc Bioinformatics ([...]ept21).

    Designed to bridge expertise in both data and life sciences in order to enable the best tools to analyse the best data, the programme is delivered 100% online. Combining different fields of study, including computer sciences, molecular biology, biotechnology, statistics, machine learning and engineering, it seeks to appeal to biologists and healthcare professionals interested in data analysis, as well as statisticians, computer or data scientists wishing to apply their skills in biology.

    Expertly adapted for online audiences from the campus-based programme, which is ranked top-20 in the UK for both Biology and Computer Science by QS 2021, the curriculum is delivered by the Centre for Computational Biology – a cross-campus initiative providing broad expertise in data science for the life sciences through both research and training – the programme is uniquely placed to support those eager to get ahead in this invaluable industry.

    Led by industry renowned Professor of Bioinformatics, Prof Jean-Baptiste Cazier – founder and designer of both the Centre for Computational Biology and the campus Bioinformatics MSc – students will learn to communicate effectively with fellow biologists, computer scientists and statisticians, interact with complex data sets, learn and teach with data and improve their coding skills.

    Applications are now open for the February 2022 intake – request more information ([...]ept21) to find out how to apply today.
