Bioinformatics profile


The Bioinformatics Profile is geared toward providing students in the life sciences with essential bioinformatics skills needed for using, analyzing and interpreting big-data produced in many of the high-throughput experiments in current ~omics research (33 EC with a preference for 45 EC including extension with electives).

This profile prepares students 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. Students participate in several core courses, advanced and in depth courses as well as a research project (profile project that can be extended with electives).

Have a look at the short video about the research of the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center.
