I am doing my bachelor degree in life sciences. Along with this, I have taken Computer applications. My optional are Microbiology, Chemistry, and Computer application. I want to pursue a PG in Microbiology or any related field through distance education. If I have any regular Master course with Computer Application as one of the subjects related to Life Sciences. I wish to know which universities offer this course with fee particulars and the admission process and particulars of entrance if any.
We do not know of any University, which offers a post graduate degree in Microbiology by distance education. But almost all the regular courses in Life Sciences these days have subjects of Computer Applications integrated with the core curriculum. So if your objective is to learn Life Sciences as well as applications of computer in Life Sciences, you can do a regular Master degree in your discipline or in Biotechnology. And to develop your career in a field, which is a convergence of Life Sciences and Information Technology, you would be well placed if you do an Advanced Diploma in Bioinformatics after your Master degree.
