Bioinformatics Minor

For students with an interest in the applications of bioinformatics in drug discovery, diagnostics, and disease management, this minor is expected to supplement their major with a stronger foundation in the life sciences, computer science, and mathematics, which allows the student to access and manipulate the wealth of data now emerging from new technologies relating to genes, genomes, and the molecules they produce in health and disease. This minor is offered in collaboration with the Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science and Networking departments.

To complete the minor, students must pass all three core courses and any two elective courses.
