Queen's University Belfast: Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics
|Institution||Queen's University Belfast View institution profile|
|Department||School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences View department profile|
The past decade has seen enormous advances in molecular and biomedical technology resulting in the ‘omics’ revolution.
Bioinformatics covers the application of mathematics, statistics and computing to biological and clinical scenarios. It involves the application and development of algorithms and software to understand and interpret ‘Big Data', which is driving medical research, discovery and practice.
You will be looking at clinical and omics data to find complex patterns, which relate to patient response to treatments and prognosis. You will discover results that translate to the real world, through commercialisation or clinical trials to tackle diseases. You will use your vision to find unique solutions to clinical and biological problems, and by the end of the degree you will be ready to work within a multidisciplinary team alongside bioinformaticians, biologists (qub.ac.uk/ccrcb), the Centre for Experimental Medicine (qub.ac.uk/cem), and the Centre for Public Health (qub.ac.uk/cph). This is complemented by guest lectures from industrial and clinical collaborators.
