WO Master

Algemene informatie

Bioinformaticians are distinguished by their ability to formulate biologically relevant questions, design and implement the appropriate solution by managing and analysing high-throughput molecular biological and sequence data, and interpret the obtained results.

This interdisciplinary two-year programme focuses on acquiring

  • Basic background knowledge in diverse disciplines belonging to the field of bioinformatics, including statistics, molecular biology and computer science;
  • Expert knowledge in the field of bioinformatics;
  • Programming skills;
  • Engineering skills.

The 120-credit programme consists of a reorientation package (one semester), a common package (two semesters) and a major.
