Do you want to become part of a revolution in biology? Technological advances have led to an explosion in the amount of biological information available to scientific communities, governments, and industry. The challenge now is how to organize, visualize, and interpret this vast amount of information. Bioinformatics seeks to make sense of biological processes on all scales, from the molecular level to full ecosystems, using powerful and efficient computational techniques. Graduate students in our bioinformatics programs apply skills in programming, statistics, and data management in their own research project. Areas of focus have included agricultural science, ecology, evolution, genetics, medicine, and veterinary science.
