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.
|Course Locations||Rockville, MD; *Online|

|Entry Terms||Fall, Spring or Summer semester|
|Degree Requirements||5 courses|
|Tuition and Fees||Tuition in the 2019-2020 academic year is $4,495 per course.
Please note: 2019-2020 tuition rates are tentative pending approval by the Board of Trustees.
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 program introduces students to the foundations of bioinformatics through the core bioinformatics courses and then the students take upper-level courses that are required for understanding and performing sequence and genomic analysis.
This program is offered *online and onsite.
