The bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics provides training in the application of computational and information technologies and statistics to the management and analysis of biological data. The discipline of bioinformatics combines computer science, biomedical sciences, physics and chemistry.
The bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics is offered jointly by the University of Barcelona (UB), Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech (UPC). The degree is taught entirely in English and is managed by ESCI-UPF and classes are taught mainly on the UPF's Campus del Mar.
The bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics brings together mathematical skills, computer modelling and biological knowledge with an interdisciplinary focus, with particular emphasis on biomedical applications. The ability to process, visualise and analyse this big data offers tremendous opportunities for improving our understanding of biology and making new advances in medicine, agriculture and the food industry.
The course also aims to prepare professionals capable of pursuing careers in research, development and innovation, while also equipping them with management skills. To this end, it provides a comprehensive education based on knowledge and values.
