Post Master’s Certificate in Sequence Analysis and Genomics
The field of bioinformatics is continually expanding and challenging our ability to bridge the gap between molecular biology and computer technology. The field has changed so rapidly, in fact, that there are few scientists who have the necessary training and knowledge in new sequencing technologies and analysis of sequence data and genomics. To fill that training gap, Johns Hopkins University has developed a five-course certificate for individuals that have masters or doctoral degrees and need practical training in the bioinformatics tools required for large-scale sequence analysis and genomics.

The Johns Hopkins Post Master’s Graduate Certificate in Sequence Analysis and Genomics was designed for scientists who already have an extensive grounding in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology and but need the bioinformatics skills to design experiments and analyze data.
The field of bioinformatics is continually expanding and challenging our ability to bridge the gap between molecular biology and computer technology. Specifically, the revolution in sequencing technology has resulted in vast quantities of data that require storage and analysis. The analysis of nucleic acid and protein data requires specialized bioinformatics tools and an understanding of genomics. The emerging sequencing technologies and accompanying bioinformatics tools will advance personalized medicine, pharmacogenomics, and molecular diagnostics methods. The advancement of these tools will open new avenues of research on many fronts. Since the field of bioinformatics has changed so rapidly, there are few scientists that have the necessary training and knowledge in the new sequencing technologies, and analysis of sequence data and genomics. To fill that training gap, we have developed a five course certificate for individuals that have masters or doctoral degrees and need practical training in the bioinformatics tools required for large scale sequence analysis and genomics.
@mary_spiro Thanks! We're proud of our grads! RT Congratulations to all the newest biotech grads. I completed mine in 2010! Bestdecisionever 5/22 via web
