Program outline

The revolution in high-throughput sequencing technologies has led to the acquisition of gigabytes of data sequences and has generated new challenges in this latest era of “omics” data.

To exploit and analyze this data, the contribution of bioinformatics is essential and impacts the practices of training future biologists. A high level of computer skills is now essential to be able to use relevant software applications dedicated to “omics” data, while simultaneously enhancing the understanding of life science.

In this context, the Master of Bioinformatics of the University of Bordeaux and the titulo propio “Bioinformatics and Omics”of the University of the Basque Country has developed an international Master’s program that offers a combined training of metagenomics and bioinformatics.

The Bioinformatics and Omics (BAO) international Master is a complete two-year program. It provides combined training with a double mobility period - Bordeaux (France) for the first semester and Bibao (Spain) for the second.
