Bioinformatics Specialists

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts the employment of biochemists and biophysicists (including bioinformatics specialists) will grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2022. Employment is expected to be good for bioinformatics specialists in the coming years. The completion of the Human Genome Project has allowed scientists to compile a vast amount of genetic information and has increased interest in bioinformatics. Information technology continues to play a key role in biotechnology and pharmaceutical research and development. These trends will create strong demand for bioinformatics specialists to help gather, study, and utilize this information for the good of society. Bioinformatics specialists with advanced degrees will have the best employment prospects.
