A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
Russia or, also officially known as the Russian Federation, is a country in northern Eurasia. Education in Russia is provided predominantly by the state and is regulated by the Ministry of Education and Science. In Russia, it takes about 70 % of training time for the contact lessons with a teacher, the rest 30 % of the workload are devoted to the independent study of the material.

Graduate - Algorithmic Bioinformatics
In algorithmic biology laboratory headed by Professor Pavel Pevzner, University of California opened a specialized master's program at the algorithmic bionformatike. Training includes in-depth courses on algorithms and data structures used for the analysis of large data sets, which are obtained by means of modern biotechnological methods.Also included in the training programming, discrete mathematics, the foundations of molecular biology, statistics, machine learning and other more specialized subjects. A detailed program of training is available on the following page. As a research student under the direction of the laboratory staff involved in solving real problems of bioinformatics.This is the development of algorithms and software systems for the assembly of genomic sequences (de novo genome sequence assembly), as well as theoretical and practical problems in computational proteomics and mass spectrometry. The program is designed to produce high-quality specialists in bioinformatics algorithmic questions, popular both in science and in industry.... [-]
