Bioinformatics Minor (Minimum of 21 Credit Hours)

The bioinformatics minor provides students who have an interest in computation and biology the opportunity to explore this rapidly developing field while simultaneously exposing these students to additional coursework in math and computing.

Due to the prerequisite coursework required for these courses, it is expected that most students will simultaneously seek a bachelor of science degree in biology, mathematics, or chemistry.
