Post Master’s Certificate in Sequence Analysis & Genomics
Johns Hopkins University

Program Details

The Johns Hopkins Post Master’s Graduate Certificate in Sequence Analysis and Genomics was designed for scientists who already have an extensive grounding in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology and but need the bioinformatics skills to design experiments and analyze data.

The program introduces students to the foundations of bioinformatics through the core bioinformatics courses and then the students take upper level courses that are required for understanding and performing sequence and genomic analysis.

The revolution in sequencing technology has resulted in vast quantities of data that require storage and analysis. The analysis of nucleic acid and protein data requires specialized bioinformatics tools and an understanding of genomics. The emerging sequencing technologies and accompanying bioinformatics tools will advance personalized medicine, pharmacogenomics, and molecular diagnostics methods. As a result, the advancement of these tools will open new avenues of research on many fronts—along with an influx of job opportunities in the field.
