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.
