Bioinformatics draws together molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, statistics and computer science.
What is bioinformatics?
Bioinformatics draws together molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, statistics and computer science. Its deals with development of tools for accessing, employing and administrating biological databases, but its main task is to analyse, interpret and search for relationships in molecular biology data. In short, bioinformatics represents computerized biology.
To provide teaching in this field, two major universities, the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague (ICT) and the Czech Technological Institute in Prague (CTI), joined forces with two Academy Institutes, Institute of Molecular Genetics and Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry. While ICT provides education in natural sciences, the Faculty of Information Technologies at CTI ensures education in informatics oriented towards both theory and practice. Two major Czech bioinformatic groups working at the Academy Institutes, differing in research interests and professional expertise, cover the entire field of bioinformatics. The accreditation is valid for both Bachelor and Master study.
