Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Bioinformatics

About the Master of Science in Bioinformatics

In the M.Sc. program students will typically take 6 semesters to work on a traditional thesis-based research project and write a thesis. This program will provide students with the opportunity to develop research and communication skills in bioinformatics at an advanced level. Students will take four courses. Students can enter the program during any semester, but an advisor must be identified before an offer of admission can be made.

The M.Sc. in Bioinformatics program is also affiliated with the M.Sc./M.A.Sc. Collaborative Specialization in Artificial Intelligence (CSAI) at the University of Guelph. Applicants wishing to enter the CSAI program through Bioinformatics will be required to meet the same criteria as the M.Sc. in Bioinformatics criteria, as described in the Program Outline page listed above. For further information regarding the CSAI program, please visit the CSAI website.
