MSc In Bioinformatics Wroclaw University of Science and Technology
Bioinformatics constitutes an interdisciplinary research area, covering applications of computer science, chemistry, and biochemistry to solve biological problems, usually on the molecular level. Typical activities include analysis of information contained in literature, genetic and structural databases, prediction of protein structure, drug, and biocatalyst, or biosensor design. The curriculum introduces programming skills necessary for automation of database searches and analysis of numerical and bioinformatics data, including analysis of new genome sequencing (NGS) results. The study programme includes advanced computer programming as well as specialised molecular biology techniques which are highly valued in the present job market.
The combination of computational skills and basic knowledge of biotechnology aims to prepare the graduates for work in research and development, manufacturing chemical software or databases, developing modern bioinformatics diagnostic services in medical laboratories, conducting quality control in environment protection, pharmaceutical or food industry laboratories. Our graduates typically continue level III (Ph.D.) education in renowned academic institutions or are employed by national and international companies.
