The Bioinformatics specialisation is a collaboration programme with Leiden University. The main focus of the Bioinformatics specialisation is on Data Analysis and Modeling, which represents the unique expertise of the different research groups of Delft University of Technology and Leiden University. This expertise is used to address issues like data capturing, data warehousing, data analysis and data mining that have become major challenges in the field of Bioinformatics due to the tremendous complexity and abundance of quantitative data in biology and medicine.

On the other hand, bioinformatics heavily contributes to the identification of new fundamental computer science principles and the development of new informatics tools. This track is part of the Master’s in Computer Science of the Delft University of Technology and the Master's degree programme Computer Science of the Leiden University.
