Students choosing to pursue a Master of Science (MSc) in Bioinformatics are most likely interested in working as researchers within the discipline of molecular biology, while taking advantage of information technology to manage and organize large databases of biological data on the molecular level.

What is an MSc in Bioinformatics? It is an advanced degree in the relatively new field of bioinformatics, a cross-disciplinary field that has arisen as a separate discipline within molecular biology. Bioinformatics applies computer science, engineering, mathematics and statistics to research and interpret biological data, similar to what was done during the Human Genome Project. At its most basic, bioinformatics applies information technology to biological molecular data on a large scale.

Students who choose this course of study will gain skills in the interpretation of biological data at the molecular level, as well as skills in database organization. The application of advanced math and information technology to this data allow the researcher to understand data relationships in a way that was previously not available.

The cost of obtaining a degree in this field will depend upon a number of factors, such as whether the student is attending full-time or part-time, the choice of university, and whether the student is attending classes at a campus or online. It is important to research schools in terms of how well they will meet your budget and goals.

A graduate with an MSc in Bioinformatics can expect to find career choices with research laboratories in academia or industry, pharmaceutical companies, and in other fields as diverse as agriculture or the development of personal care products. There are also opportunities in gene sequencing, genotyping and database design and maintenance. Employers are primarily seeking individuals with a strong background in molecular biology and advanced computational skills. 

There are many programs available for a student to consider, including international options and online courses. Online study can often save a student money, while offering greater flexibility. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
