Bioinformatics - Bachelor of Science (Hons)

Bachelor of Science with Honours (Bioinformatics)


Bioinformatics is a discipline that integrates the computational sciences and information technology to solve problems in biosciences and biotechnology requiring computational and information science solutions. Bioinformatics enables the development of algorithms or software that allow the analysis and interpretation of big data in molecular biology. The focus of such data analysis is primarily limited to the scope of molecular biology data, specifically, the analysis of sequence and macromolecular structures to gain insights and discoveries in the post genomics era in addition to applied research and development in genetics, vaccinology, enzyme technology and drug discovery that are directed at improving the quality of human health and economic progress.
