Information for prospective students
The current MSc Bioinformatics with Systems Biology at Birkbeck College has grown out of a former MSc in Bioinformatics, one of the longest-established Bioinformatics Masters degrees in the country. Since Autumn 2007 the MSc has been run as a collaboration between the School of Crystallography at Birkbeck College and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at University College London. The programme of study is available full-time over one year or part-time over two years. For more information about the course, see the Introduction to the MSc Bioinformatics with Systems Biology course page.
