Program Overview

The certificate in bioinformatics intends to provide students with backgrounds in biology or computer science the requisite background in bioinformatics in order to find employment in industries that employ persons with bioinformatics experience or in order to participate in research projects that use bioinformatics. Students study genetics, statistics, computer science, and complete a bioinformatics capstone experience.

Admissions Information

Freshman/First-Year Admission

No requirements beyond University admission requirements.

Change of Program Policy

Students are expected to complete the following introductory-level courses with a C (2.0) or better prior to beginning the bioinformatics certificate.
