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.

Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

Master in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

Vast amounts of data have been collected through genomics initiatives. They provide a golden opportunity to research the secrets of life, to understand more of its complexities, to improve quality of life and to conquer major diseases. Converting this huge volume of data into real understanding is the basic challenge of Bioinformatics research.High-throughput methods like massively parallel sequencing and mass spectrometry generate more raw data than conventional computer models can handle efficiently. To process and analyze this data, computational techniques from Bioinformatics – such as sequence alignment, sequence assembly, biostatistics and machine learning – are required in order to make predictions about health outcome and to decide on a personalized treatment for the patient.Both Bioinformatics and Systems Biology are strongly interdisciplinary fields. This program combines molecular and cell biology, computer science, and mathematical modeling to integrate vast amounts of biological data into fundamental knowledge. You will develop a strong feel for scientific research and high levels of abstraction, and learn to combine the rapid developments in these fields.... [-]

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.... [-]
