Integrative Genomics provides an interface between Biology and computational sciences. Study in this area is growing and is at the forefront of cutting-edge research. Students in this certificate program will learn new techniques and applications of current biotechnology databases to DNA and protein analysis. These techniques allow the study of disease at the cellular and molecular level.
Students who would benefit from this program are in industry and research, or teach Biology. For teachers, exposure to this area of science would keep them current in these fields as well as better prepare their students for college or upper-level courses.
This certificate consists of four courses (12 credits) that are part of the online Biology master’s of science.
