Analysing and understanding the human genome, epigenome and the associated transcriptome is a growing challenge. It is therefore important to generate a functioning and resilient interface between biologists, chemists, physicians and pharmacists, as research in the life sciences is not only carried out in the laboratory. The amount of data that is generated during the decoding of human, animal or plant genetic material, for example, must be processed and correlated in order to make it usable: This is the task of life science informatics.
The analysis and evaluation of these data sets requires a sound knowledge of medical and scientific basics in combination with application-oriented computer science knowledge. It is precisely these core skills that are taught intensively and in an application-oriented manner in the Master's programme Life Science Informatics.
