Bioinformatics – Applications (CERT)

The Bioinformatics Applications graduate certificate trains individuals in the application of established bioinformatics methods for analysis of biological sequence, structure, and genomic data. This certificate is designed to train graduates who will bring interdisciplinary expertise in biological sciences and computing to bear on large-scale analysis problems in genomic biology. The fields of bioinformatics and computational biology provide methods to extract significance from high-throughput experimental results and develop models of complex biological systems. A recent study of the biotechnology community in the Charlotte metro area alone identified 700 companies, nearly one third of which will have need of bioinformatics professionals in the near future.
