Chemistry, Interdisciplinary Emphasis in Bioinformatics, M.S.

Bioinformatics has grown from the creation of large databases that required computational approaches for efficient manipulation and analysis to a multi-faceted discipline that also includes microarray technology, statistical analysis, and molecular modeling. The department M.S. degree with emphasis in bioinformatics is available in both the non-thesis and thesis options described above with the following modifications.

Degree Requirements

Mathematics and computer science classes at the 7000 level that serve as prerequisites for 6000 and 8000-level interdisciplinary classes may be applied toward interdisciplinary coursework requirement. At least one course in biochemistry (CHEM 6600 or above) and CHEM 6640 or equivalent must be included in the above. In addition, 12 hours of interdisciplinary coursework may be applied toward the degree selected from the following partial listing:

Non-Thesis Option

For the non-thesis option, the approved laboratory or literature research paper must be on a topic within the area of bioinformatics. For the thesis option, one of the thesis committee members must be from outside the department.
