Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field of biology and computational science. It uses computer programmes to compare and analyse the sequences of biological molecules, which usually refers to DNA, RNA, or protein. Bioinformatics aims to determine gene and protein functions, reveal evolutionary relationships, predict 3-D structure of proteins, and most importantly to identify the genetic cause of diseases.  After completion of this programme, students can pursue further studies in bioinformatics and precision medicine at Master level.


The programme aims to provide students with the knowledge of genetics and genomic technologies; the operational skills of Windows and Linux computing environment; and the fundamental programming skills for the analysis of biological and clinical data. It also covers the applications of the software, database, and scripts to identify the genetic cause of diseases.

Archivist, as a relatively nascent profession in Hong Kong, is increasingly gaining recognition from the community. In fact, the profession begins to grow in recent years as more and more archival institutions of different types are being set up. According to a recent survey, it was found that there are already over 40 public, private, institutional, and corporate archives operating locally. However, the development and thriving of the archival enterprise in Hong Kong are unfortunately being hampered by the lack of qualified professional archivists.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Archival Studies, the first -ever and the one-of-a-kind archival program available in Hong Kong, was established with an aim to solve this archivist’s shortage problem.
