Rapidly increasing knowledge of the molecular biology of the cell has led to bioinformatics, a new discipline that transforms traditional biology into an information science. The School of Engineering's Master of Science in Bioinformatics program prepares students to manage and study data from the explosion of information due to next generation sequencing technologies. The program meets industry's demand for professionals with solid foundations in bioinformatics.
Our program provides a flexible curriculum as well as web-based training tools for instruction. You’ll get the fundamental background to manage and create analysis pipelines from large genomic data sets. Check out our student projects.
The program will help you develop the depth of knowledge that comes from practical application of computational skills to solve and gain insight into biological problems. With the skills to apply your knowledge to analyze next generation sequence data, you will be prepared to take part in the personalized medicine revolution. See what alumni have to say!
We also offer a certificate in Bioinformatics for those with advanced degrees in Life Science or MDs.
This program is also offered online.
