Program Description

This research and training program aims to provide students necessary skills and knowledge for using the large-scale biological data obtained in the course of biological experiments, including various “omics”, epidemiological and pharmacological studies. Applied bioinformatics also uses methods based on statistics and machine learning. Students gain in-depth knowledge in the field of modern molecular biology, genetics and related biological disciplines.

Industrial Bionformatics is a promising program for the further employment both in science and in many commercial enterprises. We invite students with basic knowledge in maths and computer science to perform calculations in bio. This program is built by experts, who proved themselves both in industry and academia.

Our educational program sends students to leading international and Russian research centers and institutes, some of which participated in the creation of the program, such as: Georgia Tech, BostonGene, Martin Luther universität halle-wittenberg, Sechenov university, Phillips etc. During their studies, our students are involved in research work with our key partner BostonGene. For students who have not fully mastered any of subjects, individual trajectory of study will be created, including the Coursera and Stepik platforms.
