I recently got involved in an EU Erasmus Mundus MSc program in <A HREF="&lt;a href=" http:="" biohealth-computing.org="" "="" rel="nofollow">http://biohealth-computing.org/">BioHealth Computing</A>. I wondered where students interested in such masters or graduate programs in bioinformatics can go to find information about available programs in the field.

I edited the title since I realized there is no "best" site. An overview of sites is more useful.

Hi Chris,

I recently came across this listing from www.bioinformatics.org. It's not restricted to post-graduate education and isn't comprehensive, but there are quite a few programs listed there.

Oops, I meant to also link to http://www.bioinformatics.org/wiki/Education_in_Europe, where they list degree programs at Universities throughout Europe. I can vouch for the bioinformatics PhD program at UCD in Ireland since I just finished it, and from my very biased point of view it was great!

Thanks! They offer interesting course topics, that appear to be mainly for self-learning. The courses are not free and an unlimited access to all the existing self-paced courses would be $2000,-. As described [?]here[?]. They do give out certificates for completed courses, but as far as I could find they do not have full masters or graduate programs.

Take the list with a grain of salt, it seems outdated in large parts. But it should be fine to use it as a starting point.

It's an extremely good website, I have been using it quite a lot in my career to look for job offers, degrees and conferences.

Some that didn't appear in the other answers:

  • [?]Gradschools.com[?], they have a lot of programs, mostly in the US.
  • [?]FindAPhD.com[?] is useful sister site to [?]FindAMasters.com[?], which was mentioned by Lars, (yes they also have [?]FindAPostdoc.com[?]; they are UK based and focused).
  • [?]Academic transfer[?] is the Dutch site for academic positions (any, not just bioinformatics)

And then I did find [?]this twitter account[?]. Not so much about programs but about grants to go there, which might be useful in this context as well.

There are several "portals" for finding master's programs. I am involved in a program in Computational Biology (http://www.csc.kth.se/utbildning/program/compsysbio/) in Stockholm and we can be found from

and I am sure there are more sites like this.

A nice feature with both these sites is that you can restrict your searches to different geographical regions.

Undegrad / Masters' visiting students mentioned that they usually visit these sites for Master's or PhD positions in EU Biojobs / naturejobs / science careers. I would also suggest mailing list of BioC, BioPerl, BioJava or BioPython. GSoC applicants are usually informed via Bio-* mailing list, so that one will be a potential resource.
