The MPhil in Computational Biology course is aimed at introducing students in the biological, mathematical and physical sciences to quantitative aspects of modern biology and medicine, including bioinformatics. The course has been developed by the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute and is run by the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. Designed for mathematicians, computer scientists and others wishing to learn about the subject in preparation for a PhD course or a career in industry, this programme is also suitable for students with a first degree in biosciences as long as they have strong quantitative skills (which should be documented in the application). Core modules are in bioinformatics, scientific programming with R, genomics, systems biology and network biology.
