Programme description

Our goal is interdisciplinary knowledge of bioinformatics, so the students will be "bilingual" in terms of combined expertise on information technology and biosciences. This is a two-year full-time study programme, and starts every year in August-September. All teaching is in English, and takes advantage of modern educational technology, such as web courses and video lectures, in addition to traditional face-to-face teaching.
