Bioinformatics Masters Programs

Northeastern University’s degree program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology provides cross-disciplinary training in biology, computer science, and informational technology for today’s cutting-edge jobs in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. The degree includes additional training and demonstrated competence in both life sciences and scientific programming. The program is structured to provide students with the skills and knowledge to develop, evaluate, and deploy bioinformatics and computational biology applications. The program is designed to prepare students for employment in the biotechnology sector, where the need for knowledgeable life scientists with quantitative and computational skills has exploded in the past decade.

The curriculum consists of six core courses in bioinformatics, 12 semester hours of electives in any of the three disciplines, and a professional co-op internship with leading industry and academic partners. Students can enroll in the program on a full or part-time basis. Evening courses are offered to accommodate working professionals.The Professional Science Master’s degree program in Bioinformatics and computational molecular biology is a professional program that is offered in Boston and Seattle. During the fall semester on the Boston campus, core classes are offered on campus or online. Come spring, Boston offers courses online to accommodate the personal and professional lives of students. Seattle courses are offered in a flexible online and on-campus hybrid format with frequent program starting dates for our Washington state students.

Perhaps get a masters in bioinformatics

by marcodoug

I would say if you were in MA. Northeastern has a really good program in bioinformatics that is pretty workable around 9-5ers that can be completed pretty much in 2 years (its all course work).
But defiently go for it, pharma, biotech and academia all have lots of genes that need to be worked with and it will keep getting more complicated the more people figure out.

UCSC vs. SCU for Masters in Computer Engineering

by RomanaMentalis

Hi there - quick question if I may request your feedback. I am very new to the Bay Area and I am considering getting a Master's in Computer Engineering. I am especially interested in bioinformatics - not to major in it, but I would like to take some classes in it and maybe do some research in this field.
Would you give me your opinion on which school in the Bay Area is best for bioinformatics. Stanford and Berkeley I'm afraid are out of my price range & skill level. I am looking more for a school along the lines of UC Santa Cruz or Santa Clara university.
Any advice/feedback/impressions that you can offer would be greatly appreciated

If you really had 3 masters

You Å) would write better B) would have a decent job C) have better analytical skills and be able to express yourself better.
You'd also know that there are many new degrees and there are also many "old" ones that prepare people for very good careers. Engineering, bioinformatics, and nanotechnology are just a few that come to mind. But I'm sure you didn't learn about these at UoP, DeVry or where ever you got thrown out of.
I'll continue to work with my students in new and exciting fields while you continue to post your ill informed nonsense.

Although Geographic Information Systems mapping of the borough pinpoints all directional signs, it does not include all data needed to comply with the program. “They want to see off-sets, heights, directions, locations, all kinds of stuff,” Faas said.

Is it worth it to get a Masters in Bioinformatics?

It depends. First of all, bioinformatics is a really hot topic right now and from that point of view: Yes. Especially in you are a biology graduate.
On the other hand, what you will do in Bioinformatics will involve mostly Statistics and Data Mining, so if you are a Math/CS graduate you can study something like that that will broaden your perspective and at the same time allow you to do bioinformatics.
