New technologies produce huge amounts of bio-molecular information daily, including data on genomic sequences, RNA and protein abundances, their interactions with one another, and their subcellular localization. The challenge is to employ this trove of biological information to understand the physical and functional interaction network of thousands of biomolecular players (DNA, RNA, proteins). This calls for a new mindset with a true interdisciplinary attitude to satisfy the enormous need for experts in biology, biomedicine, and computing, who are able to develop and apply sophisticated computational methods in the field of bioinformatics.
The Bachelors Programme in Bioinformatics at Sapienza University will immerse you in the topics and applied methods of computational modelling, molecular biology, systems biology, structural biology, proteomics, genomic sequencing and genomic analysis, microarray and next-generation sequencing analysis. You will be provided with the basic skills to interpret complex biological information, perform analysis of sequence data using sophisticated bioinformatics software, and programme software when needed. The degree covers not only the theoretical aspects of the field, but also the practical side of bioinformatics.
Drawing upon the skills of biotechnology, computer science, statistics and engineering at Sapienza University, the program aims to create a truly interdisciplinary curriculum that brings together different disciplines. The bioinformatics degree is an inter-faculty and inter-departmental academic programme for undergraduate students. It is supported by three faculties and by the participating departments.
