Bioinformatics constitutes an interdisciplinary
research area covering applications of computer
science, chemistry and biochemistry to solve biological
problems, usually on the molecular level. Typical
activities include analysis of information contained in
genetic and structural databases, prediction of protein
structure, drug and biocatalyst or biosensor design.
The combination of computational skills and basic
knowledge of biotechnology aimes to prepare graduates
for work in research, medical laboratories, quality
control or environment protection laboratories in
pharmaceutical or food industry or for manufacturing
chemical software or databases.
Research, medical laboratories, quality control or
environment protection laboratories in pharmaceutical
or food industry and manufacturers of chemical
software or databases.
