This is the first semester of an intensive two-semester course in Computational Biology, aimed at second-year graduate students. Topics include graph theory, systems biology, mathematical and computational modeling of complex systems, synthetic biology and protein design. Students will gain a mastery of cutting-edge topics in Computational Biology through lectures, careful reading of current literature, and advanced individual research projects. Prerequisite: BINF 701 and BINF 702, or consent of instructor.

Doctor of Philosophy in Computational Biology

Computational Biology Graduate Program Computational biology is an interdisciplinary science at the interface of biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics, and computer science. Its goal is development and application of computational approaches to studies of life processes and improvement of human health. The Computational Biology Graduate Program recruits students with bachelor’s or master’s degrees who made a choice to pursue a career in computational biology. The Ph.D. degree in Computational Biology requires successful completion of formal courses and demonstration of accomplishments in basic research, qualifying examinations, scientific writing, and formal presentations of research data.
