Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary curriculum combining computer science, mathematics, and biology that seeks to explore and elucidate life processes through modern genomic techniques and tools.
While there are many graduate degree programs in this area, there are presently only a small handful of undergraduate degree programs. UNI's program is one of the first of its kind.
The undergraduate bioinformatics degree program will prepare students for both graduate school or a career in the rapidly expanding biotechnology industries.
For more information, see the Bioinformatics program overview.
