Typically students enrolling in the Bioinformatics program at Boston University have strength in either the computational area or in biochemistry/molecular biology, but not both.
Students graduating with an MS in Bioinformatics are expected to:
- Demonstrate mastery of the core concepts of Bioinformatics, including computational biology, database design and implementation, and probability and statistics.
- Demonstrate the ability to apply skills in a professional environment via an industrial or academic internship in Bioinformatics.
- Be able to effectively communicate scientific information in written and oral form.
