Due to the impact of COVID-19 we're changing how the course is delivered

Please note that this programme is currently subject to University approval.

Life Sciences and Technology are an integral part of the global economy. Our Bionformatics MSc has been designed with input from major industry players to meet current and emerging skill gaps for professional bioinformaticians.

In this course, you will be equipped with the background in biology, statistical analysis, and computing necessary to work with modern biological data from genomic, proteomic and metabolomic studies. You will be trained with an emphasis on hands-on practical experience, so that you can tackle your research project with confidence. You will be taught by internationally renowned scientists at a University with internationally excellent Research Centres, including the University of Liverpool Computational Biology Facility, the newly established Centre for Metabolomics, the Centre for Proteomics, and the Centre for Genomic Research.

If Bioinformatics is your interest, upon successful completion of the MSc you may wish to continue with your education by studying for a PhD.
