Curriculum in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology - UNC Chapel Hill

Welcome!


Bioinformatics and computational biology are related fields that focus on the development or application of quantitative tools to address modern biological problems. The Curriculum in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology, started in 2002,  trains students to become sophisticated, interdisciplinary researchers using state-of-the-art computational methods to advance biological discovery.  The BCB Curriculum currently supports a standalone PhD granting program, and also a certificate of specialization for students working toward their PhDs in other affiliated departments at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The BCB Curriculum is supported and administered by the Carolina Center for Genome Sciences.  The Curriculum also receives financial support from the College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Medicine, and the National Institutes of Health.
