Introduction from the Programme Director
Mohammad Asif Khan, M.Sc., Ph.D.
Bioinformatics is a transformative science that is at the crux of interdisciplinary research, with a pivotal role in the growth of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. With the advancements in molecular biology, genomics, genetics and medical sciences, there is currently a high demand for bioinformaticians worldwide.
However, this demand is unmet, in-part due to shortage in the supply of qualified and trained bioinformaticians. In Malaysia, a number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes have been offered by local institutions of higher learning to meet this demand. However, there is currently no programme in between the undergraduate and postgraduate degrees that provides students with a strong foundation in bioinformatics to allow for smooth transition.
To fill this gap, Perdana University is pleased to offer a one-year Postgraduate Diploma in Bioinformatics programme that has been carefully designed in consultation with leading academic and industry experts of the field.
We invite you to join us on this exciting journey!
