The graduate certificate in bioinformatics and computational biology (BCB) will provide graduate students who are pursuing graduate degrees in other areas with recognition for taking multiple courses of the BCB curriculum, and thus building a strong foundation in bioinformatics and computational biology.
Students will take a total of 12 credits of coursework from the BCB curriculum and earn a letter grade of B or higher in each course.
The three BCB core courses (3 credits each):
- CS 515 Computational Biology (offered alt. odd S)
- Biol 522 Molecular Evolution (offered alt. even S)
- Math 563 Mathematical Genetics (offered alt. odd F)
One of the depth courses listed on the under Focus Area Courses. It must be a course in an area different than the student's disciplinary focus. This fourth course will have to be approved by the BCB director or other members of the BCB Governing Board.
To enroll, please refer to the College of Graduate Studies certificate program application instructions.
Current graduate-degree-seeking University of Idaho students should submit the Academic Certificate Declaration on page 2 of the Change of Curriculum form to the BCB program coordinator for director approval.
