Master’s Degree Program
The master’s program in bioinformatics is a direct response to the paradigm shift taking place in medicine and biological sciences. Further research in these areas is based on the evaluation of masses of biological data: here, the use of computers, combined with accurate mathematical models and efficient algorithms is essential. Employing adequate training in the various sub-disciplines, this program provides the required knowledge for students to be able to judge mathematical methods and models, to recognize relevant biological questions, and to correctly interpret the results of the models in a biological context.
The Master's program in Bioinformatics is a joint institution of Freie Universität Berlin (Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and Department of Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacy) and Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The program was classified as a BUA joint degree program in June 2021. This classification is given to research-oriented cooperative degree programs of the partners of the Berlin University Alliance, which are dedicated to topics of global significance and have a distinct interdisciplinary and international profile.
The Berlin University Alliance is an alliance of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and Charité, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the State of Berlin within the Excellence Strategy of the German federal and state governments.
