Bioinformatics is at the convergence of computing and the life sciences, and involves the development of technologies for storing, extracting, organising, analysing, interpreting and using the 'tsunami' of genetic information being generated. The need to process and analyse vast amounts of information requires advances in both software technologies and hardware architectures. In this degree you will learn the foundation disciplines of bioinformatics, which includes biology (biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics), computing (algorithms, databases and programming), mathematics and statistics. You will gain the skills to design and implement software for activities such as identifying the genes affected in specific cancer types.
