About the Section

Research Area
Our thirteen strong research groups work in the fields of computational biology, population and statistical genetics and RNA biology, and our researchers consistently publish their studies in highly recognized international journals. The Section houses the Bioinformatics Centre and has state-of-the-art computational infrastructure and laboratory facilities. 

We offer a 2-year Bioinformatics Master program to students with a background either in computer science or in molecular biology, biochemistry or biomedicine. Our students acquire thorough theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in bioinformatics, including sequence analysis, protein and RNA structural analysis, genomics, phylogenetics, analysis of high-throughput big data and machine learning methods.

We strive towards a friendly, collaborative and professional work environment that promotes excellent research and personal development.
