Why Bioinformatics?

Bioinformatics, the intersection of the biological and computational sciences, is essential to 21st-century biomedical research and fundamental to the modern-day study of biology. The field encompasses the development and application of computational tools and techniques for the collection, analysis, management, and visualization of biological data, as well as modeling and simulation methods for the study of biological systems.

The completion of the human genome sequence marked the beginning of a new era of complex biological data analytics. Scientists began to systematically tackle gene function and complex biological processes by studying organisms at the global scale, from genomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes to metabolomes and interactomes. Bioinformatics has a critical role in advancing high-throughput biotechnologies, large-scale bioscience, biotechnology, drug discovery, disease diagnosis, and systems medicine.

Graduates from the program will have gained knowledge and experience in both Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Bioinformatics, making them great candidates for job positions in the D.C. biotechnology hub. Graduates often pursue a career in industry, government, and academia, or pursue another advanced degree (MS, PhD, MD).

The Bioinformatics Master of Science Program requires an online application to be submitted to the Biomedical Graduate Education through the Georgetown Graduate School of Arts and Sciences application portal.

Application Requirements

Applicants are to submit all required credentials and supporting documentation no later than the application deadlines listed below. Applications are reviewed on a rolling, space-available basis.

Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts are required from every institution you have earned credits and grades, including both degree and non-degree coursework. This allows the admissions committee to have a more complete picture of your academic preparation for graduate study.

Do not send electronic or paper copies of your official transcripts before receiving an offer of admission.

An acceptable transcript upload is a copy of an official transcript produced by the institution. This includes:

  • Scanned copies of paper transcripts issued by the institution
  • Electronic transcripts issued by the institution (not a download from your institution’s web portal)

An unofficial transcript we do not accept includes the following:

  • We do not accept screenshots or photos
  • We do not accept downloads of the “student’s view” from your institution’s website

NOTE: Applicants who are offered admission will be required at that time to submit official transcripts for verification prior to enrolling.

For transcripts not in English: These documents must be accompanied by an English language version provided by the academic institution. If your institution does not provide English language copies, applicants are responsible for providing a certified or notarized translation along with a copy of the original transcripts. Applicants may upload an evaluation from a credential evaluation service. This must include course and grade information. If not included in the evaluation, the transcript from the institution must be included as well. Both the evaluation and original transcript should be submitted in the application as one document.
