Master's degree Interuniversity in Bioinformatics by the UMU and the UPCT

The Master's Degree in Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary program whose objective is to train professionals and researchers who contribute to solving the great challenges of the life sciences, developing a qualitative and quantitative understanding of life from a computational perspective. Its transversal nature gives it a synergistic value with respect to many areas of knowledge. For years, it has been impossible to imagine tackling complex problems without recourse to bioinformatics solutions, which is also evident in the high demand for professionals and researchers qualified in Bioinformatics. This Master has theoretical-practical training itineraries for students who come from the field of life sciences, mathematics and computer technologies.

Bioinformatics is considered as a catalyst for modern research in the life sciences. Its development and its impact in all fields of life sciences constitute a key element to understand scientific progress in the last 20 years. In recent years, Bioinformatics has allowed the interpretation of scientific data, decisively contributing to the understanding of the world around us, of living beings, of man and of society. Bioinformatics by itself, as an area of ¿¿science and technology with its own meaning, is articulated around research, design and development of computational solutions that contribute to developing a qualitative and quantitative understanding of life, that is, giving support for the analysis of the interpretation of data from the experimental sciences and, more specifically, from the life sciences. Its transversal nature as an instrument or tool also gives it synergistic value with respect to a large number of areas of knowledge.
