The International Exchange Semester Bioinformatics for The Life Sciences focuses on acquiring and developing the digitals skills which professionals in the Life Sciences need to handle large amounts of data and solve problems in modern Biomedical Sciences. You will explore the digital toolbox of Bioinformatics and learn about genome sequencing, data processing, analysis and visualization, database technology and the basics of programming. 

In several projects you will learn to use these tools, for instance to analyze the DNA of a patiënt with the intention to identify genomic variants that most likely cause certain diseases. You will learn the (statistical) programming language R to explore the domein of digital experimentation, and analyze genome-wide gene expression determined through RNA sequencing. After this programme, you will know everything you need to process data independently on a basic level.

We offer you

  • One semester of the Applied Bachelor Study Biology & Medical Laboratory Research, fully taught in English by experienced lecturers in the field of Bioinformatics. 

  • Theoretical and project work in the fields of diagnostic genome analysis and transcriptomics. 

  • A toolbox of Bioinformatics which gives you the basic skills to handle large amounts of data to solve problems in modern Biomedical Sciences.

  • Participation in an international atmosphere, consisting of students from different countries and cultural backgrounds, including the Netherlands.

You bring

  • Flexibility & drive

  • Openness to other cultures

  • Results-oriented attitude
