Master's Degree in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

  • The master's degree is oriented to train professionals and researchers in advanced techniques of research and analysis of biological and biomedical information, data treatment from "omic" techniques and the generation of hypotheses about the function of genes and proteins obtained through different experimental sources from the perspective of the systems biology through the use of computational tools applied to the biological data analysis.

    The Master has two distinct training objectives: (1) training of researchers capable of applying and developing new computational techniques in biomedical research, and (2) training of professionals to work in companies in that field and hospital settings.
