Translational bioinformatics, that is, translation of biomedical advances into clinical practice in the context of personalized medicine, requires the study of different kind of molecular data that are briefly referred as omics data (genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic or interactomic data).
The aim of the Master of Science program in Omics Data Analysis is to produce well trained professionals who after graduation would be able to perform efficient and rigorous omics data analysis in a wide range of applications. The master responds to the growing use of high-throughput omic techniques, both in the context of biomedical research and in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and the increasing demand for highly qualified professionals in this field.
The program will provide knowledge of the most important techniques for omic data acquisition and analysis. The students will be able to analyze omics data information using appropriate statistical and bioinformatics tools.
The teaching methodology, in collaboration with research centers and companies in the field, will ensure that a wide range of applications are covered.
