New Biology B.S. Degree

Students who are interested in both biology and computer science may consider the study of bioinformatics.


Bioinformaticians develop ways to gather and analyze data for biology research and other purposes. Advances in biology are often impeded by the glut of ever-expanding datasets and by a lack of dedicated software and algorithms, requiring skilled biologists capable of handling massive amounts of information, performing in-depth statistical analyses, and programming. Bioinformaticians do all of these things.
