The Master of Science, or MSc, is an academic degree awarded to those who effectively complete about two years of intensive study on a given topic. Many MSc courses offer a combination of classroom and research-based curriculum.

Bioinformatics concerns the application of computer-based approaches to the understanding of biological processes. The technology of today gives us high-capacity analysis of genes and proteins which make it necessary to integrate informatics when solving biological problems.

Overview

Bioinformatics is a branch of the life sciences that focus on analysing and integrating big data acquired in biomedical experimentation.

Over the last couple of years '-omics' technologies have transformed healthcare practice, biomedical research and industry, and there is a shortage of biomedical graduates with bioinformatics training in the advanced healthcare sector.

Our programme will provide you with essential skills in both molecular and computational techniques. You will learn how to design and perform experiments, and efficiently analyse next-generation sequencing data. You will acquire research data mining skills for Biological Sciences, Transcriptomics, Genomics, Proteomics and Metagenomics.... [-]

MSc Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics

Bioinformatics is developing software and algorithms to interrogate 'Big Data', now at the heart of medical research, discovery and practice.

The past decade has seen enormous advances in molecular and biomedical technology resulting in the ‘omics’ revolution.

WHAT'S INVOLVED?

You’ll be looking at the big data to find patterns that others can’t see, gaining access to data sets that have not yet been analysed.

You’ll discover results that translate to the real world, through commercialisation or clinical trials to tackle diseases.

You’ll use your vision to find unique solutions to medical problems, and by the end of the degree, you’ll be ready to work within a multidisciplinary team with bioinformaticians, biologists and clinicians.... [-]

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....
