The Master program and the relevance of bioinformatics and computational biology will be presented.

Technological advances have turned biology in a data-driven science. The avalanche of molecular data enables key discoveries in biology, ecology and molecular evolution, drives innovation in biotech and pharma-industry and supports medical and governmental decision making. However, the power of using these data for innovation depends on interdisciplinary skills to analyze, integrate and interpret the data. There is thus an urgent need for bioinformatics scientists and engineers with an interdisciplinary mind set. Ghent University offers an English 120-credits MSc in Bioinformatics, which – depending on the chosen track – can result in an Engineer’s or Bioscience Engineer’s degree.

The infosession explains the progam and the relevance of bioinformatics and computational biology. Afterwards, there is the opportunity to ask questions and to talk with current students, alumni and doctoral students. People from industry will also be present to discuss job opportunities.
