Computational and Systems Biology Track
Total Track Hours must equal 15 hours from the College of Engineering
Computational and Systems Biology combines mathematical, statistical, and computational methods with molecular biology to understand and control the complex systems that regulate human biological processes. In this track of study you will receive training in genomic biology, biotechnology instrumentation, bioinformatics, and statistical and computational modeling. Application areas include disease modeling, development of analytical methods for decoding genetic information, pharmaceutical design, and development of personalized medical informatics systems.
