The Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB) is an interdisciplinary program that offers SEVEN degree options in FOUR major categories:
- Masters in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, (BICB-MS)
- Professional Science Master, (BINF-PSM)
- Doctorates in Bioinformatics & System Biology (PhD)
- On Campus Graduate Certificate, (BINF-CERT)
- Online Graduate Certificate in Applied Bioinformatics (ABNF-CERT)
Why a Bioinformatics degree from CBCB at UD?
Our CBCB program supports students from different educational backgrounds with different career aspirations, while leveraging the common course curriculum. The students, full-time or part time, come from various biological, life sciences background, from computational, quantitative sciences and engineering background, or even from “unconventional” fields such as business, management, law and medicine. We accommodate students that are interested in applying bioinformatics as an integral approach to life science research and development, or interested in developing new computational methods and bioinformatics tools and databases.
The graduates of the MS program will have different career paths. Some will decide to pursue a PhD. Other students, especially those enrolled in the PSM program and/or those have already been employed in industry or government may consider the program as a terminal degree. While those that are already in a chosen career path may supplement their learning by taking one of two On-campus or Online Graduate Certificates.
Regardless of the chosen path, all graduates of this program will leave well prepared to pursue careers for research, education, or development in academia, business, industry, government agencies, or non-profit organizations.
