Bioinformatics is a broad subject in which biology, medicine, computer science and statistics intertwine. The basis for bioinformatics is the massive amount of biological sequence data derived from genomic studies and structural biology and stored in large databases. Computational biology also involves mathematical modelling of biological systems.

“Bioinformatics is a multi-
disciplinary field of science and this combination of disciplines is very appealing to me. When I study bioinformatics my knowledge gets much broader in different areas such as protein science, genetics and computer programming. It gives me the opportunity to learn more about Life Science.”
Christian Brüffer, from Germany
“I really like the programme. There are really engaged teachers and we get a good sample of the widespread field that is bioinformatics. It is an emerging field, studying certain predispositions in our genes and what I find most interesting is that we are concentrating on biology, not computer science.”
