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.

Having a headcount of over 100,000 people, Örebro city is the administrative center of the Örebro municipality of Örebro County, Sweden. It is the home town to one of Sweden’s new upgraded colleges – the Örebro University.

Masters in Bioinformatics in Örebro in Sweden. Have you ever wondered where the word gut feeling comes from, or why stress induces abdominal discomfort? If so, this Master's programme may be of interest to you. Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics is a two-year international Master's programme based on PBL (Problem Based Learning) and designed to offer students scientific knowledge and competencies to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. It focuses on in-depth knowledge on how diet and nutrition, the intestinal microbes, the intestine and the brain interact, as well as: i) how this is related to aberrant function of the gut and the brain, ii) how this relates to clinical practice, and iii) how this can be elucidated by state-of-the-art clinical and experimental research. The programme also provides you with an understanding of: i) how cellular processes relate to organ functions, ii) how the (patho)physiology of gut-brain interactions relates to nutritional, microbiological, gastroenterological and neurobiological aspects (with a human and clinical perspective), and iii) how bioinformatics can be an important tool to reach that understanding. This knowledge is essential for the development of new strategies to diagnose, prevent and treat the often debilitating disorders related to gut and brain function. The programme is coordinated by and linked to the cross-disciplinary Nutrition Gut Brain Interactions Research Centre (http://www.oru.se/ngbi), which provides access to internationally leading researchers and human in vivo and ex vivo research facilities, both at the university and at the University Hospital, and at the same time a strong link to selected industrial partners. In addition to theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular medicine, microbiology, physiology and bioinformatics, the programme also provides transferable skills, including scientific methodology, experimental design, data management and analysis, as well as training in manuscript and research proposal writing. Part of the programme is intertwined with two other Master's programmes, each supported by the three strong research environments in medicine at Örebro University. The joint courses will provide a broader insight into some of the general aspects influencing public health in society today. All courses are taught in English. Specific entry requirements Bachelor of Science in Biomedicine, Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Laboratory Science, Master of Science in Medicine, or Master of Science in Veterinary Medicine. Alternatively a first-cycle qualification comprising at least 180 credits of which at least 90 credits are for specialised study in one of the main fields of study biomedicine, biomedical laboratory science, biology or medicine. The applicant must also have qualifications corresponding to the course "English 6" or "English B" from the Swedish Upper Secondary School. Qualifications (degree awarded) Degree of Master of Arts/Science [120 credits] Career This Master's programme will prepare students mainly for a future research career in the research field of nutrition-microbes-gut-brain interactions - either on the doctoral level or within the industry. Additional information The application period is open between October 16th 2015 - January 15th, 2016. [-]
