Bioinformaticians specialise in programmes and algorithms that process and prepare data from molecular and cell biology. There is a lot of data available on genes, proteins, biological processes or the structure of cells that can help research and medicine. To evaluate them manually is simply not feasible. With the help of modern information technology, you can make the evaluation possible and even process the data in a way that is adapted to specific questions. In this way, doctors, pharmacists and researchers can better understand biological phenomena and help to ensure that diseases are treated in a more targeted way and that people receive the optimal form of therapy as quickly as possible. Together, biology and computer science are an exciting professional field. During your studies, subjects such as molecular biology, chemistry, biochemistry and physiology are just as much a part of your curriculum as mathematics and computer science. If you are interested in natural sciences and like to think in a solution-oriented and networked way, you have very good chances of being successful in this degree programme.

Bioinformaticians are sought everywhere where biological and medical data are generated. As a rule, there is a specific problem or question that you have to answer by analysing the data. You then develop computer-based applications, i.e. programmes, algorithms or scripts.
In this way you contribute to
As a rule, you don't need more than a computer for this. Quite often you work as part of a scientific group of medical doctors, natural scientists and other computer scientists in the aforementioned fields. This can be in hospitals, in the pharmaceutical industry, in laboratories or even in the cosmetics industry. The study of biological data is also relevant for research in the plant and animal world.
