PROGRAMME INTRODUCTION

The BSc. (Hons) in Bioinformatics is a three year programme conducted by Faculty of Applied Sciences. Bioinformatics is a new, exciting and challenging multidisciplinary field that combines mathematical, statistical, computer science and information technology methods to solve problems in biology. The programme is an outcome based curriculum, which aims to produce quality graduates that are able to work in Bioinformatics industries; bioinformatics research and educational institution; next generation sequence analysis; drug discovery and molecular version.


The BSc ( Hons) Bioinformatics programme brings together the knowledge of bioinformatics with the tremendous potential of biotechnological tools for wealth and knowledge creation. Advances in experimental technologies have produced huge amount of data. Therefore, managing and extracting useful information from these sources are important if we are to discover new knowledge to advance our understanding of the living world. The BSc ( Hons ) Bioinformatics programme provides an alternative study option for students interested in bioinformatics.
