The Wellcome Trust Integrated molecular, cellular and translational biology programme combines scientific excellence with a commitment to improving the working environment and transition support for trainees. This PhD programme, provided by world-renowned scientists from the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, will train the next generation of scientists at the forefront of international science. Students will join our supportive and positive research culture with the opportunity to select research projects centred around four themes:
- Cellular Regulation
- Protein Modification
- Infection and Immunity
- Drug Discovery and Translation
Around 50 different potential supervisors will participate in this programme
Prof Geoff Barton
Bioinformatics is the research field that seeks to find computational ways of understanding biological systems. The subject is very broad and ranges from research in statistics and computer science, through software engineering and database development, to applications in specific biological systems. The possible biological applications are equally broad, from the study of populations through molecular structure and interactions, to simulations of metabolic and signalling processes. Our work draws on and contributes to computer science, software engineering and statistics on one side and many aspects of modern biological research on the other. We publish our work both in conventional journals and as software packages and on-line resources accessible from our website: www.compbio.dundee.ac.uk.
