Drive bioscience innovation with data
Through the integrative analysis and sequencing of vast data sets, bioinformatics has driven successive technological revolutions in omics and data science. Over the last 20 years, it has helped to accelerate biological, clinical and environmental science, and has recently proved crucial in our understanding and treatment of COVID-19.
It is no surprise that the worldwide demand for bioinformaticians is on the rise. Between 2020 and 2027 the global bioinformatics market is set to increase by 13.4% (compound annual growth rate),2 as biological and clinical institutions and businesses seek to deliver more effective and efficient data-driven services.
The University of Birmingham’s Online MSc Bioinformatics will help you take advantage of these new opportunities by developing your understanding of complex data sets and machine learning tools to extract novel, biologically relevant information.
Bridging health informatics, machine learning and systems biology, our online programme connects biology, clinical services, mathematics and computer science. This makes it ideal for health and life science professionals keen to expand their data science knowledge, as well as those from a computer science background looking to upskill in biology and apply their expertise in a new setting.
