Johns Hopkins University offers an innovative graduate degree program that prepares students for success in the field of bioinformatics. Drawing upon the strengths of Johns Hopkins’ biotechnology and engineering departments, the program creates a rigorous bioinformatics curriculum that brings together computer science, biosciences, and bioinformatics.
The Johns Hopkins MS in Bioinformatics program immerses students in the topics and applied methods of computational modeling, molecular biology, systems biology, structural biology, proteomics, genomic sequencing and genomic analysis, microarrays and microarray analysis.
Graduates of the MS in bioinformatics will have the educational foundation to interpret complex biological information, perform analysis of sequence data using sophisticated bioinformatics software, and program software when needed. The degree covers not only the theoretical aspects of the field, but also the practical side of bioinformatics taught by the Hopkins faculty members who are actively developing these exciting new technologies.
