The Department of Quantitative and Computational Biology offers the Minor in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. This minor provides essential training in using quantitative skills to solve fundamental biological problems.
As with all minors, students must include at least four upper-division courses (16 units) and four courses (16 units) dedicated exclusively to this minor (they can overlap). Four courses (16 units) taken outside the major department are required. Students need to take 28 units of the courses listed: all requirements, and enough electives to add up to 28 units, while fulfilling the requirement listed above.
The courses are designed for students in biological sciences, neuroscience, mathematics, computer science, or biomedical engineering. Other students may need more units to receive the minor. Please contact the minor adviser for specific program requirements.
