Masters in Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is a combination of biological science and information technology used in analyzing and deriving conclusions from sets of data on a large scale. Most commonly, molecular biology and mathematics are used in bioinformatics. The very lowest degree required for employment in this field is a bachelor’s degree. If you want to beat out the competition of your fellow employment-seekers, you will obtain a Masters in Bioinformatics. Some of your classes will include bioinformatics introduction courses, algorithms, data structures, computational genomics, and molecular modeling.

The reason to take online classes to complete a bioinformatics degree is because the convenience is much more significant. Even if you hold a full-time job and care for a family, you can make the time to earn your master’s degree at your pace when you schedule classes online. You can complete the courses in the morning or the evening, before or after work. Some programs may require students to take some exams on campus, but most coursework can be completed from the comfort of your own home.

As far as career options after completing Bioinformatics Master’s Programs, there are many different fields you could enter. These include chemical engineering, biology, medicine and physical chemistry. In 2009, the Occupational Information Network settled on the median annual salary of professionals within this field to be about $66,500. After earning a master’s degree in bioinformatics, many students choose to move forward in their education still further with a doctorate degree so they can have a greater emphasis placed on researching or teaching bioinformatics techniques. However, many great practical applications are taught at the master’s degree level, so many students stop there and enter the career field after obtaining this level of education.
