Key characteristics of program:

Our Graduate programs in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, with SIX degree options in THREE major categories, supports students from different educational backgrounds and with different career aspirations, while leveraging the common course curriculum. The students, full-time or part time, come from various biological, life sciences background, from computational, quantitative sciences and engineering background, or even from unconventional fields such as business, management, law and medicine. We accommodate students that are interested in applying bioinformatics as an integral approach to life science research and development, or interested in developing new computational methods and bioinformatics tools and databases.

Program Goals:

Our Graduate programs in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology aim to train the next generation of researchers and professionals who will play a key role in multi- and interdisciplinary teams, bridging life sciences and computational sciences. The program is administered through its academic home, the Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS), and is coordinated by the newly established Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB). The scientific curriculum is built upon the research and educational strength from departments across the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Earth, Ocean and Environment.
