Bioinformatics

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

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.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

Masters in Bioinformatics in Asia 2017. The Program is aimed at students having background in natural science and wishing to master contemporary methodology of scientific research in order to pursue career in the field of biological engineering. The scientific projection in biological engineering aims to encourage research skills by students through an individual research project in biology, biological engineering or biophysics. Students will follow all steps of research process from the problem statement to the achievement and analysis of experimental results. Master’s Program “Biological engineering” is delivered by an experienced academic staff having a comprehensive background in fundamental research and practical applications in industries. The program is designed with emphasis on practical skills development and students work in the modern and well-equipped SibFU Laboratory of Bioluminescent Biotechnologies (in Russian). This laboratory was established through the collaboration of the world’s strongest team of scientists engaged in fundamental research of light emission by living organisms, i. e. bioluminescence, and the Nobel Laureate Professor Osamu Shimomura. Training Methods: lectures, lab experiments, case studies and group discussions. Teaching staff: SibFU Professors and visiting lecturers from universities of Russia, USA, Italy, China, Spain, UK and other countries. The major part of the Program’s training takes place at the modern and well-equipped SibFU Laboratory of Bioluminescent Biotechnologies, led by Nobel Laureate Professor Osamu Shimomura, in one of the world’s strongest team of scientists engaged in fundamental research of light emission by living organisms, i.e. bioluminescence. Research projects While following the Program students have to deal with... [-]

MRes Molecular Bioscience

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
Campus Full time 18 months September 2017 China Suzhou

This programme provides a thorough understanding of key approaches for studying biological processes at the molecular level. It takes advantage of Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University’s advanced English-language capabilities, distinctive international features, and state-of-the-art research facilities. [+]

Overview The MRes Molecular Bioscience programme provides a thorough understanding of key approaches for studying biological processes at the molecular level. It takes advantage of XJTLU’s advanced English-language capabilities, distinctive international features and state-of-the-art research facilities. The programme covers biotechnology-related topics such as molecular biology, protein biochemistry and drug discovery, as well as post-genomic biology (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and bioimaging), and bioinformatics, such as acquisition and statistical analysis of large-scale biodata. It also places a major emphasis on providing project management skills. After these taught modules, the programme focuses on an in-depth research project and specialised dissertation. Customised individual learning plans are designed for students, in keeping with their backgrounds and career aspirations. Successful completion of the programme leads to the award of an MRes degree from the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom.

MPhil in Bioengineering

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Campus Full time Part time 2 years September 2017 Hong Kong

Students must undertake substantial coursework, attend and present seminars, and successfully complete a thesis to demonstrate a high level of competence in bioengineering research. The degree will normally take two years of full-time study to complete. Part-time mode study is available. [+]

Masters in Bioinformatics in Asia 2017. The field of Bioengineering is broad, with its foundations in all the engineering sciences as well as in biological, medical, behavioral and health sciences. Joining the Bioengineering Program as a postgraduate student offers you the opportunity to build a bridge between the basic life sciences and engineering and to assist in the advancement of technology. The key discoveries of the 21st century will come from the systematic application of bioengineering principles and discoveries including the intelligent process utilization of biological information, the design of new diagnostic instruments, devices and sensors, the design of biologically inspired engineering systems, the development of new bioprocesses, and the development of health care products and biomedical materials. The multi-disciplinary Bioengineering Program allows students to apply the tools of engineering, computer science and physical sciences to their study of biological processes. It adopts a systematic and quantitative approach to the study of biological systems and seeks to provide students with the knowledge to contribute to the biomedical industry as well as to optimize existing bioprocesses and develop new biotechnologies. Students must undertake substantial coursework, attend and present seminars, and successfully complete a thesis to demonstrate a high level of competence in bioengineering research. The degree will normally take two years of full-time study to complete. Part-time mode study is available. Research Foci The Bioengineering Program addresses several major streams of research: Biological Information Engineering Investigates issues associated with new computation concepts and tools involved in medical imaging.
