Bioinformatics and Computational Biology BS - Biomedical Informatics Concentration

The Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) program is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with training in the biological sciences, mathematics, and computing needed to elucidate the molecular entities that govern biological organization at all levels, from molecules to ecosystems. Students have the option to specialize in one of the three program sub-areas; Biological Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering, or Biomedical Informatics. An undergraduate concentration in BMI will blend training in the biological and health sciences with the computational and data sciences to foster the development of technical skills. These skills will teach you to manage data and information with the potential to impact the future of healthcare at the patient level and the system level. Informatics is revolutionizing the health care industry and students will have the opportunity to work with electronic health records and big data to understand the complexities of health care in the twenty-first century.
