What does this program cover?

Bioinformatics is an up-and-coming academic subject and research area that combines modern information sciences (informatics, mathematics, and statistics) with the life sciences (biology, chemistry, pharmacy, medicine, biotechnology, and food technology). Bioinformatics deals with questions of informatics that arise with the application of new technologies and a rapidly growing quantity of data in the life sciences. The discipline is also of continuously increasing significance in medicine and drug discovery.

The exponential growth in biological data generated by national and international research projects provides a highly inviting field of application for modern bioinformatics. The application of informatics methods first made mathematical modeling possible in the biosciences, as well as the analysis of new kinds and large quantities of data. Yet the potential for applying informatics to the biosciences still exceeds its current application.

In industry, bioinformatics is perceived as a key technology. It is not least young biotechnology companies that are reliant on job applicants with specific, interdisciplinary competencies. Though the methods of bioinformatics have already been applied on an industrial scale, there are few graduates of this interdisciplinary science to date. Hence the demand in industry for well-educated bioinformaticians.
