The aim of the doctoral degree program Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is to educate experts with interdisciplinary domain knowledge of natural and medical sciences and informatics with an emphasis on practical experience and skills necessary for bioinformatics analysis of different types of large and complex datasets, extraction of knowledge from data and database systems.
The graduates will be theoretically and experimentally prepared to carry out independent research work, starting from the acquisition of large and small data sets (laboratory, clinical) up to their expert bioinformatic and statistical analysis and interpretation. The study of this program allows for straightforward practical outputs.
The graduates will find their place in the field of basic research and industrial research and experimental development and thus will find employment not only in biochemically-focused research institutions and universities, but also in private pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies.
