Bioinformatics is a research area where computer science, information technologies and statistical methods are applied to the processing of biological data. Post-genomic technologies are producing huge amount of biological data, becoming bioinformatics a key science in the task to make sense of them. The current challenge of the bioscientist is to be capable of handle with ease all this information. Bioinformatics is a strategic science, enjoying of both short and long term projections, and whose importance can hardly be overestimated.

In bioinformatics comes together the two great motors of scientific and technological change of the last 60 years: molecular biology and computer science. We are within an interdisciplinary activity, where both sciences amplify each other the potential of new knowledge and technology transfer. Bioinformatics is an inherently transversal activity, applicable to all areas of life sciences. Bioinformatics has a profound impact on fields as diverse as human health, agribusiness, environment, energy, biotechnology and computing. A new generation of resources, goods and services result from the application of these innovative knowledges and technologies.

The rise of bioinformatics has not been followed by the needed number of academic training programs. Bioinformaticians are not growing at the rate they are demanded. This is a main reason for the proposal of the MSc in Bioinformatics at the UAB. This master is a strategic project of the UAB within its recognition as Campus of International Excellence whose moto: "Promoting Knowledge and Innovation" encourages specialization, knowledge transfer, diversification and innovative potential.
