We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary program that combines the application of computer technology to the management and analysis of biological data. The result is that computers are being used to organize data generated from experiments into databases, develop new algorithms and software, and use this software for the interpretation and analysis of the data into meaningful biological information. For the past ten years, our M.Sc. program has been training students to organize, visualize, analyze and interpret biological data. Students have access to world renowned bioinformaticians at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and the BC Cancer Agency, and have exposure to the latest technologies to develop their skills.

Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I chose to pursue a graduate degree in science because it is one of the few opportunities in life which gives you the freedom to tackle an interesting problem from infinitely many self-driven angles.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
Joining the Medical Imaging Research Group (MIRG), lead by Dr. Anna Celler, was my main reason for studying at UBC. MIRG is a team of excellent physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists who do one of a kind research on diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures, and who I am humbled to join.
