Industrial Bionformatics is a promising program for the further employment in science as well as in many commercial enterprises. Students with basic knowledge in maths and computer science to perform calculations in bio are welcomed to the program. This program created by experts, who have proved themselves both in industry and academia. During their studies, students are sent to work and practice in the leading Russian and international research centers and institutes, some of which have participated in the creation of the program, such as: Georgia Tech, BostonGene, Martin Luther universität Halle-Wittenberg, Sechenov University, Phillips etc. Our students are involved in research work with our key partner BostonGene. For those students who fail to fully mastered any of the subjects, individual trajectory of study can be implemented, including the Coursera and Stepik platforms.
