Bioinformatics

What you will learn

The University of Barcelona (UB), Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya–BarcelonaTech (UPC) offer a three-year Bachelor’s Degree in Bioinformatics taught entirely in English. The degree is managed by ESCI-UPF and classes are taught mainly on the Mar Campus.

Bioinformatics lies at the crossroads of computing, biomedical sciences and physics and chemistry. It is an area of research that applies computer sciences and information technology to process data from the field of biology.

Researchers and professionals in the field of biomedicine and other areas of the life sciences are frequently overloaded with large amounts of data from a wide range of devices. The ability to process, visualise and analyse this big data offers tremendous opportunities for improving our understanding of biology and making new advances in medicine, agriculture and the food industry. The major challenge facing professionals in the field is to speed up the rate at which new discoveries can be turned into better health, more effective healthcare and greater economic and social progress in society.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Bioinformatics brings together mathematical skills, computer modelling and biological knowledge with an interdisciplinary focus, with particular emphasis on biomedical applications. It provides comprehensive education and training based on knowledge, values and skills.
