|Bioinformatics is a eight-month graduate certificate program and is the application of computer programming to management and analysis of biological information. Essential for examining how data from biological experiments can be used to generate critical information about gene sequence and function, protein structure, molecular evolution, drug testing and disease mechanisms. This emerging field requires individuals with a multi-disciplinary background in biology and computer science.|
In this program, you will receive training in computer operating systems (UNIX, Windows), programming and scripting, data storage, management and analysis, computer applications used in this field and molecular biology laboratory techniques. This program features an independent group project where you display your knowledge and skills about the principles of bioinformatics.
As a graduate of this program, you may pursue future career options, such as:
Throughout this program you will develop the following skills:
