This is an interdisciplinary major that provides education in using computational and quantitative methods to address scientific questions at the interface of the life, mathematical, and computational sciences. There is great demand for computational and mathematical biologists in academia, industry, and government, where they are investigating problems as diverse as identifying the genetic basis of disease, to predicting how ecological systems will respond to climate change.
*PLEASE NOTE: The third year subjects of the Computational Bilogy major will become to available to students in 2017. Students can still complete the first and second year subjects leading to the major in preparation for the third year subjects becoming available.
Computational Biology major graduates should:
|Structure & Available Subjects:||
Completion of 50 points of study at Level 3.
|Subject Options:|| |
All three of:
Study Period Commencement:
Plus one 12.5 points subject chosen from the following areas of study:
Students will be encouraged to complete a complementary study sequence in either biological/biomedical science, mathematics and statistics, or computer science. A third year subject in this complementary sequence or from a list of electives makes up the computational biology major.
