Course Description

The BSc (Hons) in Bioinformatics programme is a three year programme conducted by Faculty of Applied Sciences. Bioinformatics is a new, exciting and challenging multidisciplinary field that combines mathematical, statistical, computer science and information technology methods to solve problems in biology. The programme is an outcome based curriculum, which aims to produce quality graduates who will be able to work in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics industries; Bioinformatics research educational institution; next generation sequence analysis; drug discovery and molecular evolution.

The BSc (Hons) Bioinformatics programme brings together the knowledge of bioinformatics with the tremendous potential of biotechnological tools for wealth and knowledge creation. Advances in experimental technologies have produced huge amount of data. Therefore, managing and extracting useful information from these sources are important if we are to discover new knowledge to advance our understanding of the living world. The BSc (Hons) Bioinformatics programme provides an alternative study option for students interested in bioinformatics.
