Genomics is an international first-cycle degree program taught in English, training biotechnology and life sciences graduates who are specifically qualified to apply maths, statistics, and computing to the structural and functional analysis of genomes. Genomics graduates will be able to interrogate, organize, annotate, and curate biological datasets and provide tools and insights for the comprehension of omic data and systems biology of prokaryotes and higher organisms, including humans.
Requirements and Admittance Procedures:
Admission to the 1st Cycle Degree Programme in Genomics is subject to the possession of a five-year high school diploma or other equivalent qualification obtained abroad. Admission is also subject to solid knowledge and abilities in mathematics, logical reasoning, and the sciences, as well as an English language proficiency level of B2 or higher.
Students will gain a thorough knowledge of genetics and molecular biology, including an in-depth understanding of the expression and organization of genomes. They will gain strong competencies in computer programming, biostatistics, multiscale modeling, and computational simulations, as well as theoretical modeling and algorithms applicable to quantitative biology. Specifically, successful graduates will possess advanced biocomputing skills for gene-bank data mining, annotation, and management, as well as theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the analysis of biological communities, cell populations, and complex systems. Students will also learn the fundamentals of bioethics for the management of sensitive information.
Program Content: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Statistics, Data Science; Programming, Bioinformatics; Molecular Biology of the Cell, Genetics, Genomics, Metabolomics, Epigenomics, Metagenomics, 3D Genomics, Biological Networks; Bioethics.
Universities and Research Institutions, Centers for Translational Research, Advanced Diagnostics, and companies working in the ICT, biotechnological, biomedical, industrial, pharmaceutical, environmental, and agribusiness sectors. Other employment opportunities include Biocomputing counseling in forensic sciences and trials. Graduates may also specialize their profiles, choosing from a wide range of second-cycle degree programs run by the University of Bologna, including Molecular and Industrial Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Molecular, and Cellular Biology, and Biocomputing.
