Bioinformatics & Computational Biology
Modern biology, in this post-genome age, is being greatly enriched by an infusion of ideas from a variety of computational fields, including computer science, information science, mathematics, operations research and statistics. In turn, biological problems are motivating innovations in these computational sciences. There is a high demand for scientists who can bridge these disciplines. The goal of the BCB Training Program is to train such scientists through a rigorous and balanced curriculum that transcends traditional departmental boundaries. The BCB Curriculum currently supports a s PhD granting program, and also a certificate of specialization for students working toward their PhDs in other affiliated departments at UNC-Chapel Hill.
