The Master program is the second part of the consecutive Bachelor/Master study in Bioinformatics. It is based on a Bachelor program in Bioinformatics and covers advanced topics from a research and application-oriented perspective.
The following four topics are obligatory:
- Sequence Analysis/Data Mining,
- Network Analysis/Systems Biology,
- Structure Analysis/Molecular Modeling, and
- Neuroprocesses/Computational Neurobiology.
Additionally, there is the possibility to choose from more than 50 elective modules from computer science, biology, mathematics, chemistry, medicine, and biophysics, in order to specialize in one or two research directions or to learn more about the various application disciplines of Bioinformatics.
Study abroad is explicitly supported. Moreover, soft-skills, for example, teaching a tutorial, advising students in a mentoring program and writing a research grant proposal will be acquired. The study finishes with a Master thesis.
- Bachelor’s degree in Bioinformatics or comparable degree;
- entrance examination + CV;
Applicants currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s program in Computer Science can be admitted provisionally on the basis of a preliminary transcript of records, provided that they have:
- at least 80% of the required for the bachelor's degree CP (normally 144 credit points) in Bioinformatics
- already finished the Bachelor’s thesis, or if the thesis is about to be finished and the tutor has written a letter of recommendation
Applicants with an international university entrance qualification and Bachelor's degree must prove sufficient German language skills according to the regulations of the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH), the German language test for university entrance.
Provisional admission is valid for six months.
Mode of admission
Admission is not restricted. Students will be directly admitted if the admission requirements are met in full.
