Introduction

Bioinformatics is a discipline that applies Computer Science as a tool to solve problems in molecular biology. The degree has been developed in collaboration between Computer Scientists and Biologists. Mathematics coursework is also represented, as an understanding of statistics is necessary when working as a bioinformatics scientist. This is truly a unique and interdisciplinary degree. This degree is designed as a gateway for students who will pursue graduate programs (MS and Ph.D.) in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Students will also have the training to enter the workforce as system analysts working with large data sets in clinical research, government research labs, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies. Our faculty conduct bioinformatics research with a focus on image processing (MRI and histology images), and also genomics and molecular genetics (for example, studying genes associated with behavior/neural processing in mammals or genes involved in the regulation of drought tolerance in crops).
