Today’s life sciences scientists need to be able to deal with large amounts of biological data that come from high-throughput experimental techniques. Therefore a solid understanding of biological processes combined with bioinformatic and statistical knowledge on how to handle and analyze such large datasets is an essential skill. The Bioinformatics profile provides you with a much needed essential set of bioinformatics skills for future life science research.
This profile prepares you for a research career with the ability to work with bioinformatics tools, algorithms and procedures required to work with current and future large scale datasets. You will participate in several core courses, advanced and in depth courses as well as a research project.
Have a look at the short video about the research of the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center.
Please note: Bioinformatics and Biocomplexity students can not choose the Bioinformatics profile.
