The University of Manchester is launching a new bioinformatics postgraduate course that will allow students to study flexibly online.
The new PG Cert in Clinical Bioinformatics will start in March 2019, and is clinically focused, allowing students to develop their knowledge and skills in clinical bioinformatics using real-life cases.
The course covers the following four units:
- Introduction to clinical bioinformatics
- Introduction to health informatics
- Introduction to programming for clinical bioinformatics
- Introduction to next generation sequencing bioinformatics
“This is a fast moving and exciting area of science that is making a fundamental difference in medicine,” says Andy Brass, Professor of Bioinformatics at the University of Manchester. “Clinical bioinformaticians are making a real difference in understanding disease processes and improving healthcare. This course provides a starting point for a career in this rapidly expanding area of healthcare.”
