Specialisation: Computer Science
This specialisation allows you to focus on computer programming, e.g. the development and use of algorithms, machine learning and probabilistic models in bioinformatics.
You gain insight into subject areas such as biological sequence analysis, molecular phylogeny, structural bioinformatics, systems biology and the bioinformatics aspects of gene expression and proteomics data. Furthermore, you gain an understanding of the way these subject areas are part of modern scientific practice and of their industrial and medical applications.
