Education Overview

Bioinformatics, which combines genetics and biology with computer science, is a rapidly growing discipline in biological research and in computer science research. Bioinformatics arose out of a need to rapidly expand and analyze large volumes of biological data, especially in the area of genomics. Our center supports scholarship, peer study, and educational programs that bridge these disciplines and help develop bioinformatics professionals who graduate appropriately prepared to contribute to this unique technical field.
