Computational Molecular Biology

University/Institute: University of Washington (UW)
Location: United States - Seattle
Focus: Computational Biology
Recommended Undergraduate Degrees: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Math/Statistics, Other: related disciplines
Degree Offered: Diploma/Certificate (< 1 year)Diploma/Certificate (Minor/Emphasis)

Key characteristics of program:

Founded in 2000, the Computational Molecular Biology program is the cooperative effort of ten outstanding research departments at the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Interested students apply to the Ph.D. program of any participating department and may apply simultaneously to CMB. Since Autumn 2008 CMB has been proud to offer a Graduate Degree Certificate Program in Computational Molecular Biology. This allows CMB students to receive formal recognition for their interdisciplinary work.

Program Goals:

The CMB program is not a degree-granting program. Instead, all students in the CMB program must be enrolled in the Ph.D. program of one of the participating departments and must satisfy the Ph.D. admissions and graduation requirements of that department. To accommodate the significant diversity of backgrounds and goals of students in the CMB program, its requirements are deliberately flexible.
