Distance learning Master's Degree in Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

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.

Even though my attend distant learning classes online, several universities hold commencement at several locations. You could even stop taking classes for many weeks during the year without withdrawing and without throwing your student loans into repayment. That is a strong argument many people look at when enrolling in distance learning classes.

Master of Statistics by Distance Learning

Hasselt University
Online Full time Part time 2 years September 2018 Belgium Hasselt Diepenbeek + 2 more

One of the principles we are bearing in mind when setting up the Distance program is to keep it as close to the On-Campus program as possible, not only its content and teaching methods but also the way of assessing students. [+]

From the academic year 2014-2015 onwards, the Master of Statistics has been gradually offered as Distance Learning (DL) Program, next to and in parallel with the on-campus program.

Enrolling for the DL Program means that as a student you will take the program from a distance, i.e. from home, workplace or virtually any place with access to the internet.

The on- and off-campus program are offered in parallel, synchronized as far as practically feasible, and with maximal flexibility. It will be possible to switch between the on-campus and off-campus programs.

The content and learning outcomes within and across courses are identical.

In practice, the study load has proven to be too heavy to combine the full-time program (60 credits) with a job. Combining a part-time program of 30 credits with a (part-time) job is expected to be feasible.... [-]

General Overview PSM in Bioinformatics

The Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering (GSBSE) has developed a new online Professional Science Masters program in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is the application of mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches to understand biological processes. The PSM in bioinformatics is an online program and includes interdisciplinary classes across the fields of mathematics, computer science, spatial information science and engineering, and molecular and cell biology. GSBSE faculty from the University of Maine, the Jackson Laboratory, Mt. Desert Island Biological Laboratory, University of New England, University of Southern Maine and Maine Medical Center Research Institute will be teaching the courses for this online degree program. The PSM provides an opportunity for advanced training directly relevant to current knowledge for their professional careers. Students entering the program are expected to come from a cell and molecular biology background and require more intensive training in math, computer, and information science, or from the mathematics, computer or information sciences disciplines and need training in cell and molecular biology. The program requires fifteen credits of bioinformatics courses, nine credits of enrichment courses, and six credits of applied field experience. Graduates of the Professional Science Masters in Bioinformatics are prepared for a diverse range of careers in biotechnology, infectious diseases, pharmaceutical biomedical research, environmental sciences, and forensics to name a few. The professional component of the Program prepares our graduates for leadership roles in the commercial, government and non-profit markets. The program’s interdisciplinary approach, depending on the student’s background can prepare you for... [-]


MicroMasters Program in Bioinformatics (University of Maryland University College)

edX
Online 24 weeks September 2018 USA Cambridge

In this program, you will learn how to analyze DNA sequences to find mutations and anomalies, understand the important role protein structure plays in protein function and use statistical analysis tools, including R programming, to mine biological big data. [+]

Modern biology generates massive quantities of big data. Hidden in this data might be the next blockbuster cancer therapy, the definitive proof that a certain gene is responsible for a disease, or the information needed to replicate a crucial biological process — and you could be on the team that discovers it. Bioinformatics blends biology, computer science, and mathematics and in this Bioinformatics MicroMasters program, you’ll gain the cutting edge knowledge and experience that will give you significant career advantage in this fascinating field. In this program, you will learn how to analyze DNA sequences to find mutations and anomalies, understand the important role protein structure plays in protein function and use statistical analysis tools, including R programming, to mine biological big data. This program is ideal for those who want to learn more about the bioinformatics field and its effects on society at large or who would like to incorporate bioinformatics principles and tools into their laboratories....
