Overview

Genome sequencing is revolutionising the field of medicine. The ability to sequence and analyse the genome of individuals in a fast and inexpensive manner, provides an unprecedented level of genetic information associated to health and disease. The data processing of such levels of information is challenging, and requires specialised skills in genomics, health and data analysis.

MSc Data Analytics in Health Genomics will train you to analyse genomic data in connection with health and disease. You will explore how genome sequences are analysed and you will receive hands-on experience in data analysis. You will also study gene and genome technologies, as well as have the opportunity to develop your professional skills.

MSc Data Analytics in Health Genomics will cover the following topics, amongst others:

  • Gene technologies and general genomics
  • Bioinformatics and computational biology
  • Data analysis and computing programming
  • State-of-the-art genome-wide analysis techniques
  • Statistical analysis of biomedical data

Career opportunities

Personalised medicine is becoming a priority for health providers and governmental agencies around the world. Studying MSc Data Analytics in Health Genomics will enable you to be a part of the next generation of healthcare providers, equipped with the necessary skills in health data analytics and genomics to make a real difference.

Potential career paths include: genomics consultant, health data analyst, genomic diagnostic specialist and scientist/researcher in health genomics.
