Deepen your knowledge of bioinformatics and specialize in one of its fields through advanced courses. The research pathway focuses on learning how to carry out independent research and write a dissertation. The internship program aims to familiarize you with the requirements of the job market and includes the writing of a project report.

The recent and rapid development of genomics and proteomics has highlighted the critical importance of developing new analytical approaches and methods to explore the massive amount of biological data generated. This development has therefore given rise to increasingly close collaboration between specialists in life sciences and those in computer science. As much to meet the needs of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors as those of the academic environment as well as environmental issues, it has become essential to train specialists capable of integrating knowledge from biosciences and computer science.
