Course summary

The aim of this programme is to provide individuals with a platform to explore, analyse and interpret contemporary biological data. This course offers Masters level instruction in Bioinformatics and Genetic Epidemiology with a focus in genetic epidemiology.

With a focus on genetic epidemiology, this programme is ideal for graduates from a life sciences, mathematics, or computer sciences discipline.

It will provide you with the skills and knowledge of computational and statistical biosciences to prepare you for a challenging career in academic research, biotechnology, or the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

Bioinformatics is the field of study that utilises computational tools to understand biology. Genetic Epidemiology is the study of how genetic factors play a role in determining health and disease, and their interplay with the environment. As well as developing core skills in computational and statistical biosciences, you will focus gene discovery approaches including GWAS, explore copy-number variation (CNV) analysis, and post-GWAS approached such as pathway/network, gene-set and polygenic epidemiological methods.

This programme has been designed to meet the growing demand from academic research, biotechnology and the pharmaceutical and health care industries for capable informaticians with bioinformatics skills. We will provide instruction in computational and statistical biosciences and you will foster the additional complementary skills required to enable you to work effectively within a multidisciplinary bioinformatics arena.
