Course Overview

All PhD students in the College of Science will enroll in a Structured PhD

This general discipline within the School has an expanding research activity with postgraduate students (PhD and MSc) and postdoctoral researchers frequently involved in collaborative projects with other researchers at NUI Galway, elsewhere in Ireland and overseas.

This relatively new discipline involves computational and statistical modelling and analysis of largescale biomolecular data. Bioinformatics research is inherently interdisciplinary and could appeal to students from molecular life science (e.g. biochemistry), chemistry, physics, engineering, statistics or mathematics. Current work includes modeling viral evolution, discovery of human polymorphisms that affect gene expression or mRNA splicing, and genome informatics, including algorithm development and functional genomics/epigenomics.
