Depth Courses

Depth courses are designed to provide detailed knowledge of bioinformatics and computational biology.

Certificate Students will complete one director-approved depth course (3 credits).

M.S. Students will complete 9 credits of depth courses, with at least 3 credits in each of the depth areas.

Ph.D. Students will complete 15 credits of depth courses, with at least 6 credits in each of the depth areas.

Suggested depth courses are listed below, but other courses may be used. Thus, these depth courses are flexible but must be approved by committee members and the BCB director.
