Systems Biology is an exciting new, rapidly evolving multidisciplinary field of science that uses computational and mathematical models to describe, understand and predict the behaviour of biological systems.
Currently, huge amounts of so-called 'big data' on biological systems are being generated at astonishing speed. Systems Biology enables the systematic gathering of knowledge from this data, at all levels.
Enabling scientists to for example early diagnose diseases, join forces to fight against antibiotic resistance by means of network-based analysis or creating the perfect diet with help of machine learning. The applications of Systems Biology are widespread.
During 2 years, the Systems Biology master’s programme will let you gain not only knowledge but more importantly, skills and experience to take on your expert role in the field of (Systems) Biology.
Our open curriculum gives you the opportunity to specialize in multiple fields, but the choice which route fits your interests and ambitions best, is up to you. In the elective courses you can choose to gain a deeper understanding in the fields of Data Science, Biological Systems, Experimental data and/or Mathematics.
