At DTU Bioinformatics we aim to be the main provider of skilled bioinformatics students for industry, health and the public sector in Denmark. We are teaching content, concepts and methods as they are being discovered and developed by cutting edge researchers. It is the goal that, after taking an advanced course, students should be able to perform state of the art research that is at a level described in the teacher’s recent scientific paper.

DTU Bioinformatics are responsible for the following educational programmes:

BSc: Human Life Science Engineering

A BSc programme in the interplay between medicine, biology, chemistry and technology—giving students unique skills, and putting them right on the front line when it comes to combating disease and improving people's health.

MSc: Bioinformatics and systems biology
A Master programme focusing on computational analysis of biological data. Systems biology is a field of research which focuses on understanding entire biological systems—such as protein complexes, metabolic pathways, or gene regulatory networks. The Bioinformatics and Systems Biology study programme is highly interdisciplinary, combining knowledge from fields such as molecular biology, genetics, computer science, mathematics, and statistics.
