Computer Science Bioinformatics Concentration, B.S.

Within the College of Computing and Informatics, the requirements of the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Computer Science are fulfilled by completing specific concentrations of courses offered by the three different departments in the College of Computing and Informatics and designed for students interested in pursuing a career in computing. The Bioinformatics concentration was added in Fall 2016. Students in the concentration are introduced to the collection, informatics analysis and interpretation of data derived from genomic and biological macromolecular investigations. Students will receive training in up-to-date methods for data handling and interpretation while developing an understanding of critical issues in bioinformatics research design, statistical data analysis, and the application of genomics domain knowledge.
