On the 16th & 17th September, the Biology Department are welcoming some specialists from Edinburgh University to speak to our Higher Human Biology / Advanced Higher Biology students on the the topic of Bioinformatics.
Bioinformatics is at the forefront of medical technology and is part of our Higher Human Biology course. The nature of this means it is difficult for us to give pupils real life experience, making this a valuable opportunity for our learners.
We are also glad to welcome the Higher Computing class as this will provide a fantastic interdisciplinary experience for students with interests in medical technology fields.
What an exciting opportunity!
