Bioinformatics

This doctoral programme builds on and extends existing or planned studies in bioinformatics at the bachelor's level (interuniversity degree) and the master's level (at various universities). The programme is aimed at students who wish to undertake research in this field.

Bioinformatics is a cross-disciplinary field that is experiencing a major expansion, in both the academia and the professional sphere (in hospitals, the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agri-food sectors, etc.). It is also a field that has a very strong base in Catalonia. With this vision of bioinformatics as a highly interdisciplinary strategic area with significant transnational potential, one of the institutions involved in the doctoral programme is the Bioinformatics Barcelona Association (BIB), which brings together universities, research centres and companies (http://www.bioinformaticsbarcelona.eu/).

The programme integrates the best experts in the fields that bioinformatics encompasses in a programme that is unique in Catalonia, and in way that is aligned with the objectives of the BIB, thus generating greater synergies between biological and computer sciences. Collaboration with other universities provides us with a clear international vision and enables us to set high quality standards that are shared across institutions. These relationships also facilitate the involvement in the programme of experts from various fields of this highly interdisciplinary area, facilitating more effective coverage of the diverse areas that bioinformatics touches on.

The doctoral programme in Bioinformatics aims to produce graduates who are excellent researchers, with the knowledge and skills needed to contribute new methods, knowledge and tools that benefit present and future users of bioinformatics. High-level research training in bioinformatics opens up a wide range of career opportunities for graduates in academia and many other sectors.

Rationale for the programme

There is strong demand for professionals with high-level research training in bioinformatics to fill positions in hospitals and with pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agri-food companies. The explosion of biological data managed by hospitals and companies (the big data paradigm) and the need to design procedures for the correct interpretation of this data in the context of each institution’s specific objectives are the main drivers of this growing demand for specialists with high-level training in bioinformatics.

General information

Access profile

Students must have adequate knowledge of the concepts and basic tools needed to carry out competitively funded research in the field of bioinformatics. Therefore, the main entry route to the programme is via a research-oriented master's degree in a discipline that is relevant to the field bioinformatics, and priority will be given to applicants with this background.

There is one alternative entry route. Students who have not completed a master's degree but have completed a bachelor's degree in a discipline relevant to bioinformatics that carries at least 300 ECTS credits but does not include research training credits may be admitted to the programme on the condition that they complete, in their first year, 30 ECTS credits corresponding to subjects included on a master’s degree in bioinformatics taught at one of the universities involved in the programme.

The language of instruction for the programme is English. Students must therefore demonstrate a level of competence in English equivalent to level B2 (upper intermediate) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. If an applicant cannot provide certification of their level of English, this point will be assessed by the Selection and Progress Review Panel during the admission interview.

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.
e) An ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general as regards their fields of knowledge in the manner and languages that are typical of the international scientific community to which they belong.
f) An ability to foster scientific, technological, social, artistic and cultural progress in academic and professional contexts within a knowledge-based society.

The award of a doctoral degree must equip the graduate for work in a variety of settings, especially those requiring creativity and innovation. Doctoral graduates must have at least acquired the personal skills needed to:

a) Develop in contexts in which there is little specific information.
b) Find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem.
c) Design, create, develop and undertake original, innovative projects in their field.
d) Work as part of a team and independently in an international or multidisciplinary context.
e) Integrate knowledge, deal with complexity and make judgements with limited information.
f) Offer criticism on and intellectually defend solutions.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

Students must have adequate knowledge of the concepts and basic tools needed to carry out competitively funded research in the field of bioinformatics. Therefore, the main entry route to the programme is via a research-oriented master's degree in a discipline that is relevant to the field bioinformatics, and priority will be given to applicants with this background.

There is one alternative entry route. Students who have not completed a master's degree but have completed a bachelor's degree in a discipline relevant to bioinformatics that carries at least 300 ECTS credits but does not include research training credits may be admitted to the programme on the condition that they complete, in their first year, 30 ECTS credits corresponding to subjects included on a master’s degree in bioinformatics taught at one of the universities involved in the programme.

The language of instruction for the programme is English. Students must therefore demonstrate a level of competence in English equivalent to level B2 (upper intermediate) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. If an applicant cannot provide certification of their level of English, this point will be assessed by the Selection and Progress Review Panel during the admission interview.

Access requirements

Applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor’s degree or equivalent and a Spanish master’s degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

1. Suitability of the applicant's bachelor's and master's degree (20%). The highest score on this point will be given to students who have completed a bachelor’s or master’s degree in bioinformatics. In other cases, consideration will be given to the research area that the applicant is seeking admission to.

2. Academic record for bachelor’s and master’s studies (45%). For this point, the Selection and Progress Review Panel will consider whether the applicant’s academic record is competitive enough to obtain a predoctoral grant. If it is not, the applicant may only be admitted if a thesis supervisor who can provide some other type of pre-doctoral contract (covered by a project budget, for example) is proposed by the applicant or can be assigned by the programme.

3. A covering letter (max. 2 pages) in which the applicant explains why they wish to undertake doctoral studies in this programme, provides information on their academic background, and indicates which research area of the doctoral programme they are seeking admission to. Applicants may also propose a thesis supervisor if they deem this appropriate (10%).

4. Interview (15%). The interview will be conducted in English and will serve as a means of assessing the applicant’s conversational skills in this language. It will also provide an opportunity for applicants to ask any questions they have or request additional information about the curriculum and objectives of the programme.

5. Additional academic activities: published research papers and conference papers (10%).

Training complements

The main entry route to the programme is via a research-oriented master's degree in a discipline that is relevant to the field bioinformatics. Priority will be given to applicants with this background. Students with this background will not need to take any compulsory bridging courses. However, the academic committee for the programme, in agreement with a student's tutors and thesis supervisor, may recommend optional bridging courses according to their academic background and chosen research area.

Students who have not completed a master's degree but have completed a bachelor's degree in a discipline relevant to bioinformatics that carries at least 300 ECTS credits but does not include research training credits may be admitted to the programme on the condition that they complete, in their first year, 30 ECTS credits corresponding to subjects included on a master’s degree in bioinformatics taught at one of the universities involved in the programme. The content of the 30 ECTS credits will be decided by the thesis supervisor but must also be approved by the tutors and the academic committee.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Formation activities


Activity: Development of skills related to communication and dissemination of research – basic level (compulsory)
Hours: 36
Description:
Each of the selection and progress review panels for the programme (one per intake year; see Section 3.2) will organise annual progress review sessions that bring together doctoral students who were admitted to the programme in the same year. These sessions will also be used to develop students’ research communication skills, which will be given particular attention during student presentations.

Activity: Attendance of working doctoral groups (compulsory)
Hours: 48
Description:
Each year, the doctoral programme will organise a one-day scientific workshop. Doctoral students must participate in at least two of these workshops, at which they will present a poster. The aim of the workshops will be to present, examine, share and discuss the state of the thesis research process in its initial, middle and final stages. Sessions will always be organised at three levels:
Initial: Conceptual approaches and complete research plan
Middle: Methodologies applied and methodological problems to be solved
Final: Expected results and results already achieved.
The workshops will follow a standard format, with oral presentations and two poster sessions (morning and afternoon). Workshops will be conducted in the language of instruction for the programme (English). Doctoral students must send summaries to the academic committee in advance. Based on these submissions, students will be selected to give 20-minute talks (with an additional 10 minutes for discussion) for each of the three levels indicated above.
This activity allows students to share experiences at three crucial points in their training process and gives the coordinator of the doctoral programme a clear idea of the direction, level and pace of their research.

Activity: Attendance of seminars or lectures given by experts in the area of knowledge (compulsory)
Hours: 9
Description:
The doctoral programme will organise a series of scientific seminars. A seminar will be held about once every two months (four per academic year) with the aim of improving doctoral students’ knowledge of topics related to their thesis research. Doctoral students must attend at least three of these seminars each academic year for three years. Seminars will focus on topics covered by the programme and will be taught by internationally renowned researchers.

Activity: Presentation (poster or oral) at a national or international conference (compulsory)
Hours: 100
Description:
Presenting one’s research and engaging in a discussion before audience members who are knowledgeable about the topic presented is one of the most effective ways to learn and improve one’s research activity. Making a presentation of this kind at an international conference that focuses specifically on the subject area of a doctoral student's thesis and is attended by researchers with a strong reputation in the relevant field of study is a crucial test and milestone for future researchers nearing the end of their academic training.
For this reason, the organisers of the doctoral programme propose that students participate in a scientific meeting (workshop or international conference) where they can present the results of their research and receive input and feedback from renowned researchers specialising in their field. These events also provide students with an opportunity to take part in discussions and provide input on significant issues in their subject area.
Given the highly specialised nature of academic events of this kind, students must be at an advanced stage of their thesis work to undertake this activity. This activity will be supervised and oriented by the student’s thesis supervisor or tutors.

Activity: Writing of a research paper for submission to a high-impact scientific journal (compulsory)
Hours: 500
Description:
Students’ most representative results will be presented in the form of a scientific paper.
In the process of producing a doctoral thesis, working intensively on key skills in formal and content-focused contexts is an experience that helps students optimise their scientific activity within the framework of the international research community. This activity also plays an important role in developing and training future researchers. It is essential that students understand the process, mechanisms, tools, expository and formal approaches, and the requirements that generally apply for the publication of research papers in indexed journals.
Given that papers are often the main tool for contemporary research, we believe it is vitally important that, before obtaining a doctoral degree, students gain experience in this area by writing at least one scientific paper for publication in an indexed journal.
This activity will be carried out when students are nearing completion of their experimental work and have obtained results that can form the basis of a scientific publication.

Activity: Research stays at public or private centres in Spain or abroad (optional)
Hours: 490 (3 months)
Description:
To be awarded an International Doctorate mention, during the training period required to earn a doctoral degree, students must complete a period of mobility of at least three months at a well-regarded higher education institution or research centre outside Spain and take courses or do research work there. The period of mobility and the activities carried out must be vouched for by the thesis supervisor, authorised by the academic committee, and recorded on the doctoral student activity report. The required period of study may be non-continuous provided that the total time is at least three months and that all of this time is spent at the same institution. The training period starts when a student is admitted and ends when they are awarded a doctoral degree. Although periods of international mobility are optional, the programme will provide incentives so that the majority of doctoral students participate in this activity.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
