About this program

Master’s Degree in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

Multidisciplinary programme that involves professors and researchers from several Schools of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Polytechnic, Medicine and Sciences) and from external top research centers such as Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas (CNIO), Centro Nacional de Biotecnología (CNB), Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa (CBMSO) y Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). The Master is highly practical with most subjects alternating theory and programming assignments during lectures.

The master's degree is oriented to train professionals and researchers in advanced techniques of research and analysis of biological and biomedical information, data treatment from "omic" techniques and the generation of hypotheses about the function of genes and proteins obtained through different experimental sources from the perspective of the systems biology through the use of computational tools applied to the biological data analysis.

The Master has two distinct training objectives: (1) training of researchers capable of applying and developing new computational techniques in biomedical research, and (2) training of professionals to work in companies in that field and hospital settings.

Admission requirements

The Academic Coordination Committee will assess each application for admission taking into account the applicant’s Degree and previous training. The selection criteria will include the assessment of:

  • The applicant's academic record (50-75%)
  • The adequacy of the applicant’s profile to the Master’s teaching (10-40%)
