The module covers the fundamental principles of informatics and bioinformatics applied to clinical genomics. Students are taught to find and use major genomic and genetic data resources; use software packages, in silico tools, databases and literature searches to align sequence data to the reference genome, critically assess, annotate and interpret findings from genetic and genomic analyses. Theoretical sessions are coupled with practical assignments of analysing and annotating predefined data sets. This module is central to the Genomic Medicine Programme as it provides students with the skills to begin to analyse genomic data. This module is suitable for beginners and does not involve the use of the Unix command line or R. Students with previous bioinformatics experience are advised to take the advanced bioinformatics module.

Fees and funding

The fee for 2021-22 will be £1,250 for home students and for £3,134 for overseas students.

HEE funding is available for NHS staff wishing to apply to study Genomic Medicine at The University of Cambridge for study of individual modules or modules as part of a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or part-time Masters in Genomic Medicine.  Limited funding is also available for those wishing to extend their study from a Postgraduate Certificate or 4 modules to a Postgraduate Diploma or MSt. All funding is subject to availability.

Prospective students wishing to apply for HEE funding should apply for their course place in the first instance. If you are eligible for Health Education England [HEE] funding then your application for funding is made via the University and not directly to HEE.  If you receive a conditional offer of a place, we (the University) will confirm the amount of HEE funding we can offer. With your permission we will then share your details with HEE so that they can progress and approve your funding allocation. There is a useful funding application procedure flowchart on the HEE website here, click the ‘funding rules’ tab under each module description.

HEE funding is limited and only available for modules before the end of March 2022. You should make your application to us as swiftly possible in order to secure a place on the module(s) of your choice and secure any available funding.
