Would you like to join our Masters student program and the Bioinformatics Centre which now accepts 50 students every year, roughly half of the accepted Master students are Danish. All courses are taught in English as we welcome international students. The two-year master's program started in September 2002, and the number of applicants grows annually.  

About The Section and research

We conduct basic research in bioinformatics using different models - probabilistic models and comparative methods for computational analysis of non-coding RNA, we also research in gene regulation and protein structure.

Wide spec of experimental biology Molecular Biology is also conducted as basic research; molecular biology is looking at gene transcription and associated regulatory mechanisms. Consequently we span a wide spectrum of experimental biology and bioinformatics methods, as well as computational bioinformatics methods. The main areas of research are:

Bioinformatics Centre in connection with the section Under the Faculty of Science The Bioinformatics Centre' was founded in 2002 as an independent Centre. At the time the Centre kick-started bioinformatics research and -education at the University of Copenhagen.
