As a consequence of the large amount of data produced in the field of molecular biology, computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information.

A qualification in bioinformatics opens doors to careers in industry, public research establishments and university research. They can also find job opportunities in multinational companies, chemical, agricultural and health-care organisations, R&D organisations, academic institutions, government organisations, software companies and product marketing companies.
