The Postgraduate (2nd cycle) Study Programme Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary study programme jointly organised by the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor.
The basic aims of the programme comply with the goals of postgraduate study as stipulated by the law. The programme consists of research- and profession-related topics including computer science, genomics and biomedicine, and is comparable with similar internationally recognized programmes abroad.
The aim of program is to enable students to acquire and further develop the interdisciplinary knowledge in the above areas:
by studying theoretical and methodological concepts.
by training for the transfer and application of the theoretical knowledge in practice, and
by learning to solve profession- and work-related and other problems, in particular by searching for new sources of knowledge and by applying scientific methods, to develop the ability to communicate within and among professions, professional and scientific criticism and responsibility, initiative and independence in decision-making and managing highly demanding tasks.
The syllabus for 1st year consists of 8 required and 4 elective courses. The winter semester consists of 3 required courses and 2 elective courses. The summer semester consists of 5 required courses.
REQUIRED COURSES:Information and communication technologies in bioinformatics, Algorithms and data structures in bioinformatics, Molecular biophysics, Introduction to bioinformatics, Applied computer science for bioinformatics, Multivariate statistical methods, Computer geometry for bioinformatics, Data mining and knowledge discovery.
ELECTIVE COURSE: Selected topics in biochemistry, Selected topics in biophysics, Basics of molecular and cell biology, Chemistry.
The syllabus for 2nd year consists of 4 required and 2 elective courses, a seminar and a master thesis. In the winter semester, the student takes three required courses and two elective courses. In the summer semester, the student completes the required course, the seminar related to the master thesis and writes a master thesis. Altogether, the student collects 60 ECTS of which 15 ECTS belong to the master thesis.
