Bioinformatics involves the application of computer technology to manage and understand biological information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development. Study bioinformatics at UQ Postgraduate study in bioinformatics at the University of Queensland will prepare students for a highly rewarding career in an industry that’s shaping the future of modern science. As it is a new and growing area, there is a world shortage of trained bioinformaticists and computational biologists. Graduates can find employment in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, research organisations and governments in roles such as bioinformatician biomedical computer scientist biostatistician clinical data manager geneticist medical writer/technical writer research scientist software/database programmer UQ offers the following postgraduate program in bioinformatics, which will enable students to broaden and add computational analysis to their skill-set: Program: Master of Bioinformatics Location: Brisbane, Queensland Semester intake: February Duration: 1.5 years Application deadline: November 29 The Master of Bioinformatics (#24) is designed for biological sciences, computing and mathematics graduates who wish to increase their technical and research skills in core areas of bioinformatics, to update their knowledge of recent technologies and methodologies, and to obtain practical laboratory and computational skills through immersion in a research laboratory. The program enables candidates to develop and effectively use best bioinformatics practice to solve complex scientific problems. It will also provide a preparation for entry into a Research Higher Degree program.
