Compare MSc Programs in Bioinformatics in Europe 2019

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

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.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Overview

Over the past few years, Bioinformatics has become the most exciting field in biology. This Bioinformatics MSc course provides a unique hands-on learning experience in bioinformatics skills, by combining the latest advances in analysing high-throughput genomic, transcriptomic and metabolomics data.

Cranfield’s Bioinformatics MSc is the first of its kind in the UK. With more than 200 alumni over the past 10 years, it became the most popular postgraduate course in Bioinformatics in Europe. Because Cranfield is a solely postgraduate university it means that every single taught module of the Applied Bioinformatics MSc is uniquely tailored to be a Masters-level. That’s why it is the award-winner of the BBSRC’s Masters Training Grant (MTG) for best course in life sciences. Our taught modules cover in great depth a plethora of programming languages typically applied in the bioinformatics, such as Perl, Java, R and SQL; as well as modern Web technologies such as JavaEE, NoSQL and JavaScript. Furthermore, we have two dedicated taught modules focusing on established bioinformatics protocols for the latest Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and 3rd Generation Sequencing (3GS) technologies....
