Genomics Data Science

Rapid advancements in high-throughput technologies used to sequence DNA have led to an unprecedented increase in the availability and use of genomics data, from fundamental scientific discovery in the life sciences to clinical applications in precision medicine. The analysis of these large, complex datasets requires a new generation of highly trained scientists who possess not only a sound understanding of the underlying biological principles and technologies, but also the necessary quantitative and computational skills. Combining elements of genetics, statistical science, data analytics, machine learning, bioinformatics and computational biology, this exciting new programme will provide graduates with a highly marketable and transferable set of data science skills as well as specialist knowledge of and experience in the application of these skills to the analysis and interpretation of genomics data.
