A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.
Learning how to develop algorithms, as well as studying the methods of established ones, is virtually essential for most computer sciences. An effective algorithm can dramatically speed up software and hardware development, but it’s useful in any technology field by helping students refine their logical reasoning.
St. Petersburg Academic University of the Russian Academy Of Sciences
In algorithmic biology laboratory headed by Professor Pavel Pevzner, University of California opened a specialized master's program in algorithmic bioinformatics
Graduate - Algorithmic Bioinformatics
In algorithmic biology laboratory headed by Professor Pavel Pevzner, University of California opened a specialized master's program at the algorithmic bionformatike. Training includes in-depth courses on algorithms and data structures used for the analysis of large data sets, which are obtained by means of modern biotechnological methods.Also included in the training programming, discrete mathematics, the foundations of molecular biology, statistics, machine learning and other more specialized subjects. A detailed program of training is available on the following page. As a research student under the direction of the laboratory staff involved in solving real problems of bioinformatics.This is the development of algorithms and software systems for the assembly of genomic sequences (de novo genome sequence assembly), as well as theoretical and practical problems in computational proteomics and mass spectrometry. The program is designed to produce high-quality specialists in bioinformatics algorithmic questions, popular both in science and in industry....
