What is Bioinformatics? Why do we need it? Which biomedical and nanotechnological applications need Bioinformatics?
The International Bologna Master in Bioinformatics addresses these questions and aims to generate knowledge and expertise in specific fields of Biology, Biotechnology and Medicine, where it is fundamental to refer to and retrieve bio-molecular data stored in Biomedical Databases.
In the post-genomic era, it is urgent for the advancement of science and of technological application to manage billions of biological data in order to store and retrieve the correct information. Furthermore, it is necessary to improve existing methods or alternatively to develop new ones for the analysis of genes, genomes, polymorphisms and their correlation to different pathologies.
