The doctoral program in bioinformatics and computational biology from the University of Idaho provides a unique interdisciplinary graduate educational experience.

Our program has a stronger focus on statistical analysis than is typical in a bioinformatics program, but we emphasize computation and genomics more than is typical for a biostatistics program. This enables the graduate to advance the state of the art, not merely to keep up with it. Thus our students get the appropriate training that lead to successful careers in government, biotechnology, agriculture, biomedicine and academia.

Students have access to state of the art core facilities, including our Computational Resources Core facility and Genomics Resources Core facility.
