Key characteristics of program:

Knowledge Objectives
1. Demonstrate knowledge of the scientific principles that underlie the current understanding of molecular biology, statistics and computer science.
2. Demonstrate an ability to productively integrate knowledge from disparate fields to solve problems in biomedicine using computational methods.
3. Demonstrate knowledge of the types and sources of data most commonly used in computational bioscience, including knowledge of all major public data repositories.
4. Demonstrate the knowledge of the classes of algorithms most often applied in computational bioscience, and their domains of applicability.
5. Demonstrate an understanding of the principles and practice of the scientific method as applied in computational bioscience, including experimental design, hypothesis testing, and evaluation of computational systems.

Program Goals:

The Computational Bioscience Program of the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine is dedicated to training computational biologists who aspire to achieve excellence in research, education and service, and who will apply the skills they learn toward improving human health and deepening our understanding of the living world. The Computational Bioscience Program provides graduates with the foundation for a lifetime of continual learning. Our curriculum integrates training in computation and biomedical sciences with student research and teaching activities that grow increasingly independent through the course of the program. Our graduates are able to do independent computational bioscience research, to collaborate effectively with other scientists, and to communicate their knowledge clearly to both students and the broader scientific community.
