Bachelor in Bioinformatics (Hons)

Course Title : Bioinformatics, Bachelor (Hons)
Course Code : BBI


About the Course
Bachelor in Bioinformatics programme is structured to produce graduates with strong understanding of the science of Bioinformatics and its applications in research and development of new drugs. The programme builds a solid foundation in chemistry, biology, computer science, mathematics and statistics and enables students to have the skills necessary to apply computing tools to address contemporary problems in biology and medicine. The students will possess the technical knowledge and ability necessary to address a scientific problem by exploiting biological software and datasets and creating simple Bioinformatics tools.
