Master’s in Bioinformatics, MSc and PhD at Guelph.
Guelph offers three different graduate programs for you to find your best fit. The M.Binf. program is a 3-semester course based master’s that was designed for students with little to no formal background in statistics and programming, yet provide you with the skills to analyze datasets and develop new bioinformatics approaches. The M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs are traditional, thesis-based degrees that provide you the opportunity to perform international level research in bioinformatics in order to develop new tools and new models to explain biology.
Please note that we are currently only considering exceptional domestic students for entry into MBINF Fall 2020, until July 15. M.Sc. and Ph.D. applications continue to be accepted on a rolling basis.
The Bioinformatics Program has decided that instruction within the MBINF program will be remote for Fall 2020 (semester 1). Rest-assured that we are committed to a high-quality education, which would include virtual interaction with instructors and peers. A decision has not yet been made about Winter 2021 (semester 2).
