Bioinformatics

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Bioinformatics concerns the application of computer-based approaches to the understanding of biological processes. The technology of today gives us high-capacity analysis of genes and proteins which make it necessary to integrate informatics when solving biological problems.
