Interdisciplinary Programs

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Program (M.S. and Ph.D.)

Bioinformatics and computational biology (BCB) are new disciplines emerging from the application of mathematics, statistics, and computer science. They explain the vast quantities of biological data that modern molecular techniques have made available.

Emphasizing Interdisciplinary Collaborations

The emphasis of the BCB degree is on active, interdisciplinary collaborations. A degree in BCB requires coursework and practical experience in biology, mathematics, statistics, and computer science. The focus of the degree is on learning to develop and use computational and mathematical tools to analyze biological data.

Faculty from Across Campus

Initial participants include faculty members from eight departments or divisions: Biological Sciences, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry, Plant, Soil, and Entomological Sciences, Fish and Wildlife Resources, Forest Resources, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. These academic units span 4 colleges and one institute: Science, Natural Resources, Agricultural and Life Sciences, Engineering, and WWAMI.
