Bioinformatics is becoming a central enabling discipline in the life sciences with the explosion in high-throughput data generated by genomics and proteomics technologies. Bioinformatics applies the methods and discipline of computer science and statistics to the data and goals of molecular biology and provides a computational framework to analyse these data and generate new knowledge in the life sciences.
The day to day administration of this part of the program is conducted through the Computer Science and Engineering Student Office.
This page outlines the core program rules for the Bioinformatics stream when taken as part of a single or dual award in Science, Science (International), Science and Business, and Advanced Science. Advice regarding the order and placement of courses in the program can be found on the CSE website.
