Computational Biology certificate programs

The graduate certificate in bioinformatics and computational biology (BCB) will provide graduate students who are pursuing graduate degrees in other areas with recognition for taking multiple courses of the BCB curriculum, and thus building a strong foundation in bioinformatics and computational biology. To enroll, please refer to the College of Graduate Studies certificate program application instructions. Current graduate-degree-seeking University of Idaho students should submit the Academic Certificate Declaration on page 2 of the Change of Curriculum form to the BCB program coordinator for director approval. The certificate emphasizes the acquisition of biological and computational expertise by supplementing graduate students’ existing background with necessary training in molecular biology, genomics, and computer science. There is a clear need for the development of expertise to analyze the growing amount of biological data generated from genomic, phenotypic, environmental, and other sources.

The certificate emphasizes the acquisition of biological and computational expertise by supplementing graduate students’ existing background with necessary training in molecular biology, genomics, and computer science. There is a clear need for the development of expertise to analyze the growing amount of biological data generated from genomic, phenotypic, environmental, and other sources. The goal of the certificate is to provide the coursework and a richer academic environment for graduate student to synthesize information across multiple disciplines. The certificate is aimed to prepare highly qualified graduate students who have rigorous multidisciplinary training in molecular biology, genomics, and computer science. The certificate is aimed at graduate students in engineering, sciences, computer science, and agriculture, although students from other colleges may also find it valuable. The primary objective is to provide students an interdisciplinary training in bioinformatics. Washington State University goal is to develop among the students a critical scientific understanding of bioinformatics, including the biological and computational aspects of algorithm development and implementation. Students who are eligible will notify their department’s graduate committee and their guidance committee of their interest in the certificate. Once the guidance committee has agreed that it is in the student’s best interest to pursue and complete the certificate, the student will Bioinformatics Certificate committee. The application will include a statement from the student’s advisor and graduate committee supporting the application. In this way, we hope to enhance the disciplinary degree. For students to excel and get the most out of their participation in this certificate, we anticipate that students should have proficiency in the following: one year of calculus, coursework in probability and statistics (strongly advised as it is required for some courses). It is also advisable for students to have 1 year of computer programming (coursework or experience), but it is not required.
