Bioinformatics & Computational Biology
As biology grows increasingly quantitative and digital—witness the mapping of the human genome, and the advent of the Personal Genome Project—the field of bioinformatics and computational biology has become a critical science. And the professionals who wish to enter it will need an integrated education that incorporates the skills and experience necessary to develop and use computational techniques as well as mathematical concepts for the analysis of biological data. The Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (BCB) program at WPI is meeting this challenge through an interdisciplinary approach that brings together biology and biotechnology, computer science, and mathematical sciences. The result is a program that produces graduates who are experienced in the language, concepts, and techniques of these disciplines—and ready to begin rewarding careers.
