Computer Science: Bioinformatics, 2018-2019
The Bioinformatics specialisation contains a full-time, two-year master’s programme (120 EC).
During the first year students will complete:
- the mandatory Core programme ( 24 EC)
- a selection of Specialisation courses ( 24-36 EC)
- a Support programme (maximum 12 EC)
During the second year, students will do a Research Assignment (15 EC) and carry out a Master's Thesis Research Project (45 EC)
If applicable, a Support programme will be defined by the Board of Bioinformatics (BoB) for students that have minor deficiencies in their prior education. The selection of Specialisation courses is made in consultation with the study advisor. The total amount of Specialisation courses will be determined depending on the scope of the Support programme that needs to be followed.
For more information on the specific requirements of this specialisation, see the appendix of the Course and Examination Regulations.
For specific questions about programme content, curriculum choices and/or study planning, please contact study advisor dr. Katy Wolstencroft through the Board of Bioinformatics (BoB).
For any other inquiries, please send an email to the programme coordinator: José Visser.
