Full time September MSc Full-time: 2 years

About the course

Discover which biomolecules make the difference between health and disease

Are you interested in unravelling this by using machine learning, sequence analysis, computational models and/or systematic experiments? Then the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Master at VU Amsterdam is the programme for you.


In the Bioinformatics specialisation track, you will follow three additional profile courses in which you will learn how to write algorithms that can align sequences, design complex bioinformatics workflows to process molecular profiling data, predict how protein folds given only their sequence, simulate protein molecules, and apply machine learning effectively on large-scale molecular profiling datasets in biomedicine.
