PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The field of Bio-Informatics has rapidly developed over the course of the last several years, due to the need to process data from new biotechnologies (multiomics data). Given the diversity of these new technologies and the mass of data to be processed, Bio-Informatics has become a field in its own right, at the crossroads of Information Technology, statistics (Big Data), biology, and medicine. At the industrial level, the field will continue to grow in order to respond to advances in the health sector (personalized medicine at the diagnostic and therapeutic level). With these changes, the Bio-Informatics field will need new experts who understand the data, tools, and current challenges of the field, and who are capable of developing new software adapted to the technological advances in biomedicine and computer science.

Large companies such as Google, Illumina, IQVIA, and IBM Watson have already positioned themselves in this field, as they understand that it is a major issue today.

Courses in this Master Program are conducted in both English and French.
