Graduate Program in Bioinformatics

Vancouver, British Columbia - Canada

The Bioinformatics Graduate Program offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees to students doing research in the field of bioinformatics. This interdisciplinary graduate program, administered by the College for Interdisciplinary Studies, combines training in both biological and computational methodologies. The strategic objectives of the program are:
* To build on BC's growing reputation and excellence as a leader in bioinformatics, genomics and population-based approaches to health care and
* To integrate bioinformatics with basic biology to further the current research excellence in other life science sectors in the province.

The program integrates academic centres in computer science, statistics, molecular biology, and biotechnology, with translational research groups at hospitals and at the clinical interface. Members of the Centre for High Through-put Biology (CHiBi), the Genome Science & Technology Graduate program, the department of Statistics, the Bioinformatics, Empirical & Theoretical Algorithmics Laboratory in Computer Science, the Genome Sciences Centre at the BC Cancer Agency, and the Michael Smith Laboratories have been instrumental in developing the current program. The program also integrates other departments at UBC in the faculties of Medicine, Science, Forestry, and Land and Food Systems that broadly support bioinformatics research in the life sciences.
