Starting fall 2011 Reykjavík University offers MS program in Bioinformatics. A bioinformatics track is also offered within the MS program in Biomedical Engineering , A number of M.S. and B.S. projects are available in our research fields.
  • Development of algorithms or statistical methods for studying DNA sequence reads.
  • RNA and protein expression analysis.
  • DNA sequence analysis.
  • Software development for zebrafish behaviour analysis.
  • Molecular simulations.
  • Data analysis and management of biological/clinical data.
  • Clinical decision support systems.
