The TIGP Program on Bioinformatics (BP) is a joint-degree program sponsored by Academia Sinica (Institute of Information Science, Institute of Statistical Science, and Institute of Biomedical Sciences), National Tsing Hua University, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, and National Taiwan University. Additional teaching support is available from other major research universities in Taiwan. As one of the best and historic Bioinformatics programs and the only Bioinformatics program with a full English-learning environment in Taiwan, our mission is to nurture the world-class bioinformaticians. Our courses are specifically designed for BP students and taught by active and experienced researchers in Bioinformatics.
The program provides interdisciplinary training and research opportunities that seamlessly integrate related areas so that students are well-prepared for independent research in new and fascinating areas of Bioinformatics. We focus on genomic, proteomic and integrative omics studies with an emphasis on data transfer, data analysis, biological information and biological feature extraction, as well as knowledge management using advanced computation methodologies and computer science technology.
