Careers and Outcomes
From answering questions like where do we come from, how are different species related, to predicting which cancer drugs a patient is likely to respond to, Bioinformatics harnesses the power of computing and big data to answer important questions. In the Bioinformatics major you will learn about both biological interactions as well as computer science. You'll learn how to program, troubleshoot, and apply these programs to answering a large variety of biological questions.
