This program is the first mover, the first undergraduate bioinformatics program in Indonesia and the first in ASEAN region to cater for global future needs. As scientific accelerator, our program ensures the integration of IT platform and life sciences, enhancement of research, and enabling big data analysis. This program offers personalized experience, to ensure that our boutique learning experience indulges student in a customized and unique scientific journey.
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 compute research and innovation data from other study programs that i3L offers.
The demand for skilled bioinformaticians in overseas countries and Indonesia is always increasing. Top-tier players such as LIPI, NalaGenetics, NurienMe, GSI Lab, Nusantics, and numerous universities, have been looking to hire highly-skilled bioinformaticians. A wide range of overseas scholarships for further bioinformatics studies (master and doctoral levels) is available.
To become a leading and innovative education and big data innovation center in ASEAN that is of the international bioinformatics standards.
Head of Bioinformatics
Welcome to the i3L Bioinformatics program! Our program offers interdisciplinary skills that encompass Information Technology, Biology, Statistics, and Algorithms. It is expected that graduates will possess multi-skills that can be beneficial in getting the opportunity to various job fields. Most of our courses relate to projects and research, therefore, students can get exposure to solving industry problems. This way, our graduates will be equipped with the necessary experiences to become leading scientists. Our outstanding faculty members will enhance students’ analytical, data management, programming, statistics, algorithm, and also biology skills. Our global network in Asia and Europe also ensures students’ road to being global bioinformaticians.
Our interdisciplinary curriculum blends 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 for bioinformatician in Indonesia and the world also open the career path in reputable industries and companies.
Collaboration with reputable universities around the globe ensures students education is as broad as possible. Student can choose to do an internship overseas during their study; such as Singapore (Genome Institute Singapore; CamTech), European countries (Hasselt University, Belgium), and Australia (La Trobe University). Master feeder program for our graduates prepares them to face the world at the next level because of the demand for skilled bioinformaticians.
With the blend of life sciences and informatics technology, our research has earned its uniqueness unique and sophistication. The student will be trained to sharpen their analytical, research, and programming skills in our project and research-based curriculum to draw the “golden needle” from the big data “haystack” with only their computers in their disposal. This distinctive opportunity is not felt in other undergraduate programs as we are the first-mover in ASEAN.

Muhammad Zainul directly went to his Ph.D. study (S3) from his undergraduate study (S1).
He was granted a scholarship for his Ph.D. study in the University College Dublin, Ireland
Muhammad Fachrul directly went to his Ph.D. study (S3) from his undergraduate study (S1).
He was granted a scholarship for his Ph.D. study in the University of Melbourne, Australia.
Mika Kuno was a scholarship awardee for a master’s program in the University of Tartu, Estonia.
She recently graduated with an M.Sc. in Geoinformatics for Urbanised Society.
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 did a 6-month research attachment at the National University of Singapore in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.
I have come to realize the diverse skillset that I have gained and the future impact that I get to make by studying Bioinformatics
Why do I end up with the Bioinformatics? At the time I saw the opportunity and value offered by Bioinformatics. So as you know looking for scientific research is competitive field. So I saw that Bioinformatics can give you more value and opportunities, so you will be unique in term of looking for a job.
At first I saw Bioinformatics program at i3L I am interested to learn more about it since Bioinformatics have to deal with biological data.
At Bioinformatics study program, everyone will get so many great experiences in having internship and projects. And the faculty are very nice!
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.
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.
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.
