About the course

Course description

Bioinformatics provides an important bridge between cutting edge science and the delivery of genomic medicine in clinical practice.

Demand for genetic testing and, therefore, clinical bioinformatics is increasing globally all the time, but there is a severe shortage of bioinformaticians able to analyse clinical genomic data.

Our fully-online PGCert is a practical, clinically-focused course aimed at providing the necessary skills to produce high quality bioinformatic workflows to analyse and interpret clinical genomic data.

You will be taught by a team that has successfully delivered the Clinical Bioinformatics Scientist Training Programme and has several years' experience training clinical bioinformaticians for the NHS.
