Bioinformatics at University of York - UCAS

Course summary

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that applies and develops computational methods to extract and report on insights from biological data. It includes importing, tidying, visualising, analysing and communicating and is applied to complex problems in any domain of biology and beyond, with data generated from, for example, images, all types of 'omic' technologies and monitoring devices. In the Department of Biology, we have considerable research expertise in the application and design of computational methods for finding solutions for three major global challenges: Health and Disease, Sustainable food and fuel, and Environmental change. This course is aimed at bioscientists with no previous experience of programming or bioinformatic analyses. By undertaking this programme, you will therefore receive a thorough grounding in research bioinformatics that will enable you to pursue a bioscience PhD with a computational component or a range of other specialist career paths within industry. This programme is subject to approval. For further information, please get in touch.
