Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Computer Science
Description:Life Sciences are becoming increasingly quantitative and analytical, and integrative. This program will train students in the fundamentals of biology - with a focus on molecular biology - and will give them computational and mathematical skills needed to manage, analyze, and model large biological datasets. Two integrative features of the program are a three-credit joint independent studies course, and a one-credit seminar. The program fills an important gap in the undergraduate programs at McGill, as no existing program allows students to get a solid training in these two increasingly interconnected fields.
