Program Overview

Are you in to combine knowledge in molecular biology, programming with scientific approaches to offer new solutions in biological problems?

Bioinformatics lies in the interface of biology, computer science and statistics and aims to give meaning and interpret a huge mass of biological data. Students will learn how to manage methods and software tools to process and analyze large-scale data generated from wet lab experiments in Omics research

Applications are invited for academic year starting September, 2019. For exceptional applicants 10 fellowships covering tuition fee are available
