Concentration in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (8 credit hours)
Designed for PhD students with a particular interest in bioinformatics and computational biology from the genetics and computational biology perspectives, this concentration combines a creative curriculum and a research experience guided by Center and Computer Science faculty who are experts in these areas. The bioinformatics and computational biology option curriculum uses a combination of courses from the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences (IBS) PhD curriculum, courses from the Molecular Biology and Genetics program, and other bioinformatics and computational biology-related courses specifically designed for the concentration or from various programs in the School of Medicine and the Department of Computer Science. In addition to their coursework, PhD students complete 3 research rotations during their first year in the program, and then begin their PhD dissertation research starting in the summer before their second year.
