We develop new courses, build educational tracks, and promote a new scientific community. It is our aim that our graduate students will contribute strongly to methods development within bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology, and that they will drive and contribute to the most important scientific projects in molecular life sciences in Norway and internationally.
