Program in Bioinformatics

University/Institute: University of Toledo, College of Medicine and Life Sciences (UT)
Location: United States - Toledo
Focus: Bioinformatics
Recommended Undergraduate Degrees: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Math/Statistics
Degree Offered: Certificate (< 1 year) (Major/Primary Degree)

Key characteristics of program:

The UT Bioinformatics Certificate was originally developed to supplement the training of PhD students in other tracks at UT, but then was made more broadly available. Certification is earned by successfully completing three of our 3-credit core courses. The selection of which courses to take is made jointly by the student and admissions committee, based on the student's background and goals. The degree could be completed in one term, though students can take up two years to complete it if they need to spread out the coursework more.

Program Goals:

Graduates will have developed a broad understanding of bioinformatics, with deeper knowledge of specific areas bioinformatic methods associated with one or more of the other four tracks. They will have experience in the analysis of the scientific literature and of large datasets, in both written and oral scientific communication. Graduates have basic programming, statistical, and data management skills. Our graduates will be prepared for a range of careers, whether academic, public or commercial.
