Master Gene2:





Master in Biology and Health - Paris-Saclay University

The GenE2 Master has two specificities that make it unique:

  • the integration of data at different scales from the genome to the population, which leads to the study of biological networks (gene networks, metabolic networks, etc.);

  • a "Big Data" workshop: practical bioinformatics workshop the objective of which is to familiarize students with the manipulation and use of high-speed data from genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metagenomics or metabolomics.
