Description: 

Field of study: Biotechnology

Specialization: Bionformatics

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 specialized molecular biology techniques which are highly valued on present job market.
