Course Description:

The aim of the programme is to give students knowledge of the various types of problems within bioinformatics. Modules include:

-Sequence Information and Analysis: This module covers the basic theory and practical techniques of bioinformatics, focusing on problem solving and experimental design.

-Genome Analysis: This module provides an overview and analysis of the theory and practice of genome sequence analysis and the expression of the genome.

-Three-dimensional Structure and Visualisation: This module details programming techniques required for the development of graphical data, their interfaces and visualisation.

-Programming Tools: This module introduces object-oriented programming, enabling students to design, implement and test programs of moderate complexity. Fundamental programming techniques are also examined.

-Database Construction and Information Retrieval: This module examines relational databases via Oracle.

-Statistics in Genetics: This module details modern statistical computing and graphics environments. Students will gain skills in implementation, application and interpretation of statistical methods

-Current Research Topics in Bioinformatics: The module explains how to carry out bioinformatics research, highlighting current research areas both at De Montfort University and globally.

-Research Methods: The module introduces and develops the concepts, organisational structure and deliverables of a research project using qualitative and quantitative methods.

-Individual Project: The topic of the project should be in a relevant area and can be either theoretical or practical. The students are supervised by staffs from both computing and biology.


Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods. Students will be expected to undertake self-directed study. The programme consists of eight modules and an individual project. The modules run from late September. In full-time mode, the summer is devoted to work on the project, while in part-time mode the final year is devoted to the project. Assessment is via examinations and coursework.
