Minor in Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is a new scientific discipline that merges biology, computer science, mathematics, and other areas into a broad-based field that has profound impacts on all fields of biology. It is the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and statistics), science (e.g., biochemistry), and a core set of problem-solving methods (e.g., computer algorithms) to the understanding of living systems. The bioinformatics minor provides foundational study in this emerging field of study.
