Bioinformatics, or the application of computational techniques to molecular biology problems, is a fast-growing field of significant importance in both academia and industry. Students completing a bioinformatics minor will gain the basic knowledge of biology and programming needed to work in this area, as well as an understanding of how computational techniques can be used to advance our knowledge of biology and the life sciences.
