Bioinformatics Graduate Program
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary science at the interface of biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics, and computer science. Its goal is development and application of computational approaches to studies of life processes and improvement of human health. The Bioinformatics Program recruits students with bachelor’s or master’s degrees who made a career choice to become professional bioinformaticians. The Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics requires successful completion of formal courses and demonstration of accomplishments in basic research, qualifying examinations, scientific writing, and formal presentations of research data.
