The new course starts next Monday, October 1st!

We welcome all you to the new course of the MSc in Bioinformatics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. As you know, the course starts next Monday, October 1st, at 9:30h in the C5/058 classroom of the Facultat de Biociències. Let me remind you that in the students master web page you will find the complete schedule of the course, as well as a map of the faculty with the exact location of your classroom. You can incorporate it in your personal Google calendar to be aware of the latest changes by clicking in this icon  + Google calendar of this  link.

You will have complete access to the student Web page using your NIU (Student Identification Number). 

In order to bring you to the classroom the first day, I invite you to meet Antonio Barbadilla and Raquel Egea at 09:10h at the main entrance of the Facultat de Biociències (central axis), right next to the concierge (main entrance). They will guide you to the classroom and will present several important aspects about the master before the class begins. If you have any problems/suggestions/questions, do not hesitate to contact me (the first days and also during the rest of the course). 

Regarding the classroom, it is a bioinformatics lab with one computer per student and it is devoted exclusively for students of this master during the first semester. You will have open access to it during the first semester, even if there are no programmed classes. In the following links you have the UAB normative of these spaces (in Spanish and English) and you should sign the last sheet for accepting the regulations and deliver it to us the first day.


We wish that this master fills completely your expectations and it becomes the decisive boost for your professional success.

Kind regards,

Raquel Egea
