Master’s Degree in Bioinformatics

Curriculum specialized in the analysis of data generated by the new 'omics' technologies

Bioinformatics is one of the scientific disciplines that has had the greatest prominence and impact in recent years, especially after the pandemic generated by COVID-19, thanks to the research, development, and application of computer and computing tools to enable and improve the management of biological data.

Since it is a recently-created discipline, there is a growing demand for specialized professional profiles. This Master's Degree was created in response to this business need to train bioinformatics students who will lead the field in the future.

The degree's main purpose is to offer students highly specialized, top-level education, both at a theoretical and applied level, to effectively meet the growing demand for IT profiles specialized in the management and analysis of clinical data, and with the ability to generate computational models.
