Bioinformatics and Systems Biology is a joint degree Master's programme from VU Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The programme teaches you to combine molecular and cell biology, computer science and mathematical modelling to integrate vast amounts of biological data into a fundamental understanding of life at the molecular level.
During the programme, you will develop skills in scientific research and a high level of abstraction and quantitative thinking. You will learn to apply and combine rapid developments in different research fields and obtain an interdisciplinary mind-set with many transferrable skills.
The Master’s is a two-year programme taught in English. The programme offers two thematic specialisations:
