Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field where Information Technology meets Biology. Large amounts of biological information need to be managed with IT tools. Our course aims to fulfil that role.

The MMU Bioinformatics course is a balance of IT and Life Sciences plus training in specific applications. The course is designed to produce multi-skilled graduates who are knowledgeable and well-equipped to support the rapid development and growth in the field of biotechnology and bioinformatics. A significant component of our course is practical laboratory experience and problem-based learning, alongside student presentations and lectures in small classes. Projects and Industry experience add another dimension to the knowledge gained in lectures. We provide:

  • A strong foundation in biological and computer sciences in readiness for a future professional development
  • Skills in the use and application of relevant tools and techniques
  • Effective interpersonal and communication skills
  • Awareness of professional and social responsibilities

Bioinformatics is the application of information technology and science to the organisation, management, mining and use of life science information. It finds applications in a wide range of industries such as the health care industry (personalised medicine), the pharmaceutical industry (drug development), agriculture (crop development) and environmental management (biological degradation of wastes), as well as in academic research (gene and protein analysis). Bioinformatics is dynamic and evolving, representing one of the most rapidly growing and challenging areas in science and technology today.

Potential career prospect : Bioinformatician, Biology Researcher in health care industry, biomedical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, agricultural industry, environmental management industry, forensics centre, research institutions and universities.
