Bioinformatics and Genome Research (B. Sc.)

Genome Research strongly relies on bioinformatics: Genome research increases its variety of methods and finds more and more data about genomes and metabolic processes. These data can only be used, i.e. processed and interpreted, by means of bioinformatics.The Bachelor Program Bioinformatics and Genome Research connects theory and methods of Genome Research with Informatics. Bielefeld University is one of the worldwide leaders in Genome Research. Already during the Bachelor Program students are given insights into current research. They also have opportunities to do a part of their studies abroad by means of our numerous international cooperations.
