The Master of Science in Quantitative and Computational Biology is a multidisciplinary degree that formally integrates quantitative sciences and applied biology.
The course - entirely taught in English - is designed to capture the increasing need for researchers and experts able to transform the enormous amount of biological information ("big data") into knowledge and to gain quantitative insight into the behaviour of biological systems by means of bio-mathematical and bio-physical models.
Key target areas include pharmacogenomics, biotechnology, food science, and precision medicine, which represent applied research fields where the growing availability of multidimensional data demands high interdisciplinarity.
The course is designed to train experts in biotechnology, computational biology, bioinformatics and biological data and systems biology analysis, who will have the opportunity to learn in a multidisciplinary context, interacting with students with different experiences. Strong emphasis will be given to quantitative and computational aspects, with a focus on tools to analyze, model and understand biological systems and phenomena.
