Post-Master's Certificate in Sequence Analysis and Genomics
The Johns Hopkins Post-Master's Graduate Certificate in Sequence Analysis and Genomics was designed for scientists who already have an extensive grounding in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology and but need the bioinformatics skills to design experiments and analyze data.
The program introduces students to the foundations of bioinformatics through the core bioinformatics courses and then the students take upper level courses that are required for understanding and performing sequence and genomic analysis.
The revolution in sequencing technology has resulted in vast quantities of data that require storage and analysis. The analysis of nucleic acid and protein data requires specialized bioinformatics tools and an understanding of genomics. The emerging sequencing technologies and accompanying bioinformatics tools will advance personalized medicine, pharmacogenomics, and - along with an influx of job opportunities in the field.
Founded in 1876, Johns Hopkins University, a top tier research university with campus locations in Maryland and Washington, DC, has been dedicated to educating its students and cultivating their capacity for life-long learning, to foster independent and original research, and to bring the benefits of discovery to the world.
Through the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, The Advanced Academic Programs offers various online learning opportunities, showcasing both graduate certificates and graduate degree programs, spanning various industries with the goal of providing a world-class Johns Hopkins education in a part-time format.
• Flexibility - Online students don’t commute to a physical classroom. Instead, they work inside a course management system to complete assignments and interact with instructors and classmates. There are due dates for course work, but students can log in to the course management system at their convenience.
• Excellent Instructors - All AAP courses are taught by highly-accomplished instructors, known for the scholarship and practice of their disciplines. Online courses allow AAP to expand our faculty pool beyond the DC/Baltimore area, offering students the chance to work with excellent instructors from all over the country and the world.
• High levels of interaction - Online students communicate with their instructors and classmates through discussion boards, group assignments, and the occasional live online event. Students often say the online environment allows them to learn as much from their classmates as they do from their instructors and assignments.
All programs are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
