Utrecht Bioinformatics Center


The UBC coordinates the different bioinformatics education activities at the Utrecht Science Park (UMCU, UU) such as internships, summer schools, as well as bachelor, master and PhD courses. Courses range from general introductory courses to highly specialized courses on evolutionary bioinformatics or advanced data integration.

Bachelor courses

UBC offers several bachelor courses that can be pursued at Utrecht University. Below are the specific bachelor courses, more information is provided when clicking on the course:

Master’s programme Bioinformatics and Biocomplexity

The two-year research programme will bring together the intricate worlds of biology, computer and data sciences and focuses on producing and analyzing large data sets in an innovative way. Bachelor’s students that meet the requirements are in the field of Biomedical, Computer and Pharmaceutical Sciences or Biology.

Life Sciences specialization

Given that bioinformatics is interdisciplinary and applied to a wide range of life science research questions, we aim to make bioinformatics a track that can be followed within different master programmes of the Utrecht Graduate School of Life Sciences. This would allow one to specialize for example in plants and bioinformactics as well as cancer and bioinformatics.
