The Indonesia International Institute for Life Sciences (i3L) is a premium life science and entrepreneurship education and research institute. i3L’s vision is to be a leading and globally connected interdisciplinary institution that impacts society through science and
innovation. Bioinformatics helps to compute research and innovation data from the other study programs that i3L offers.
This program is the first mover, as the first bachelor Bioinformatics program in Indonesia and the first in ASEAN region catering for global future needs. As
scientific accelerator, our program ensures the integration of IT platform and life sciences, enhance research, and enable big data analysis. This program offers personalized experience, to ensure that our boutique learning experience indulges the student in a customized and unique scientific journey.
Head of Bioinformatics
Welcome to i3L Bioinformatics program, one of the first Bioinformatics bachelor program in Southeast Asia. Our program is the answer for the increasing need of biological data scientist as the exponential increase of biological data in the world. Students will develop their analytical skill, data management, programming skill in the enriched environment with outstanding faculty and facilities. Our global network also ensures student’s road to being a global bioinformatician.
Our interdisciplinary curriculum blends the life science with informatics knowledge without forgetting each unique essence, opening the career path in life sciences (biological scientist, forensics, etc), informatics (data scientist, data manager, etc), or both. The increasing awareness and need of bioinformatician in Indonesia and the world also open the career path in reputable industries and companies.
i3L collaboration with reputable universities around the globe ensures student’s education is as broad as possible. The student can choose to do an internship overseas during their study; from Singapore (Genome Institute Singapore; CamTech), European countries (Hasselt University, Belgium), Australia (La Trobe University) and much more. Master-feeder program for our graduates prepares them to face the world at the next level because we know fortune favors the prepared ones.
With the blend of life science and informatics technologies, our research is unique and sophisticated. The student will be trained to sharpen their analytical, research, and programming skill to draw the “golden needle” from the big data “haystack” with only their computer in their disposal. This distinctive opportunity is not felt in other bachelor programs as we are the first-mover in ASEAN.

The opportunity gave me a much better understanding on the real-life applications of bioinformatics, and how they improve the efficiency of scientific researches.
The opportunity also opened doors for me to meet different individuals with different backgrounds, whose insights really broadened my horizons. From this experience, I realized how beneficial it is to do internships and similar
activities early in your academic life. I'm looking forward to more opportunities in the future which provided by i3L.
I am convinced that i3L will make changes to the future of academics in Indonesia. It is because of their self-initiated programs and their dedication towards bringing up the concepts of research, especially in the field of life sciences. i3L brings about new fields for students to choose, which not only helps me in promising careers, but also in gaining vast knowledge. In addition, the complete and high-end facilities at i3L give me the advantage of studying with proper laboratory equipment and accurate research practices.
During my studies in I3L, I have learnt a lot of positive skills. Not only academically but more like leadership, problem solving skill, presentation and communication skill which are essentially important for my daily life and jobs.
Thus, I would strongly recommend all the students to consider i3L.
The journey as a bioinformatics student has led me to explore a vast and distinct area of science and computer discipline with regards to data analyst as my main interest and exposure. It is a fortune for having i3L environment assistance in the learning process and aid me, especially during my internship at the National University of Singapore. My project there, assessing 11 years of Singapore General Hospital Emergency Department data, has taught me how data can be a decisive factor in writing and evaluate a policy, especially for the 21st century.
