There is currently a worldwide shortage in graduates qualified in Bioinformatics and the skills to interpret the data that is going to underpin advances in biology and medicine in 21st Century. With the advent of Personalised Medicine, the demand for specialists in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics will further increase. This gives you the opportunity to build your transferable skill set across a range of cutting edge technologies and start building a career in this central facet of modern biology.

Students completing the MSc course in Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics will have the necessary skills and knowledge to undertake research and development in industry (Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, Diagnostic companies), in medical research centres and in academic institutions worldwide.

Computational, statistical and machine learning methods form an integral part of modern research in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Pharmacology, Public Health Care and in Medicine. The past decade has seen enormous progress in the development of molecular and biomedical technologies. Today’s high-throughput array and sequencing techniques produce data in the range of terabytes on a daily basis and new technologies continuously emerge. This will further increase the stream of data available for biomedical research. For this reason analyzing, visualizing and managing this huge amount of data is a challenging task. The Queen’s MSc course in Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics targets these data-driven challenges of modern science. The course is open to graduates in computer science, life sciences, physics or statistics.

The programme will consist of an Introductory short course (two weeks) in Cell Biology, followed by modules in:

• Genomics & Genetics

• Analysis of Gene Expression

• Scientific Programming & Statistical Computing

• Algorithmic Biology

• Statistical Biology

• Bioimaging Informatics

• Research project : MSc dissertation
