Bioinformatics

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Bioinformatics deals with the application of computer approaches to make sense of biological systems. It has become a key focus for industry, especially in the post-genomic age.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Being the largest city in Sweden, Stockholm has over 1.3 million people in the urban area. The city comprises of several Islands and it is the capital city of Sweden. Stockholm has over 10 universities and colleges.

Masters in Bioinformatics in Stockholm in Sweden. The programme is a unique collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University, in the environment of Science for Life Laboratory, Stockholm. The students will receive a comprehensive education in life science emphasising cutting-edge methods in bioinformatic analysis of big data, combined with state-of-the-art techniques used in modern "high throughput" molecular biology and how to translate biological findings into diagnostic tools and novel treatments. Programme presentation This two-year Master’s programme is delivered by a team of teachers who are internationally recognised researchers in their respective disciplines to ensure a relevant curriculum at the research forefront. The programme consists of courses aiming to give a solid education in a combination of molecular biology, biotechnology and medicine with a focus on high-throughput biology and analysis of big data for translation of biological findings from lab bench to patient bedside. The education also aims to develop skills and abilities essential to the professional career –including oral and written presentation, team working skills, and how to make ethical and societal considerations about life science related issues, all of which important for the ability to lead projects in academy and industry. Courses - Master’s programme in Molecular Techniques in Life Science *might be subject to changes Year 1 The first year contains advanced level courses in genetics, biophysical chemistry, and translational medicine, as well as the foundations of bioinformatics and comparative genomics. There is also a project course. All three universities offer courses during the first year, with an emphasis on Karolinska Institute (fall semester) and Stockholm University (spring semester). Mandatory courses fall semester Frontiers in life science 1 Frontiers in translational medicine Applied communication Genetics Mandatory courses spring semester Frontiers in life science 2 Bioinformatics Project in molecular life science Comparative genomics Biophysical chemistry Year 2 The second year offers courses in applied gene technology, proteomics, drug design, and bioinformatics analysis of large-scale data. There is also a project course. Most courses during the fall semester are offered by KTH Royal Institute of Technology. During the spring semester, the individual degree project is performed. Mandatory courses fall semester Frontiers in life science 3 Project in molecular life science Proteomics Drug development Applied gene technology Analysis of data from high-throughput molecular biology experiments Mandatory courses spring semester Degree project The application process for the programme will be handled by the Royal Insititute of technology (KTH) in collaboration with Stockholms universitet (SU) and Karolinska Institutet (KI). Career opportunities The combination of molecular biology, biotechnology and medicine provides an excellent profile for a professional research career in an academic setting or in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry. The life science industries and academic institutions working in these areas are active and the life science sector is expanding worldwide, which gives students an excellent job market and wide range of possible employments.
