Through an inter-college collaboration, the Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science and Software Engineering, and Statistics Departments offer a Cross-Disciplinary Studies Minor (CDSM) in Bioinformatics. Bioinformatics lies at the intersection of computational sciences and biology. The CDSM in Bioinformatics creates a strong foundation in molecular biology as well as the design and applications of software and databases commonly used by computational biologists. The student will gain an understanding of how bioinformatic data are generated, organized, and used to gain insights into molecular life science.
The CDSM in Bioinformatics will provide the opportunity for biology, biochemistry, computer science, and statistics students to identify solutions to biological questions using bioinformatics, to write and implement software on a bioinformatics project, to apply statistical analyses associated with bioinformatics, and to learn algorithms that can be useful for software development in the bioinformatics/computational biology field.
A student may not be awarded both the Cross-Disciplinary Studies Minor in Bioinformatics and the Biotechnology minor.
