About

At this Bioinformatics program at Illinois Institute of Technology  you'll learn the use of computer science, statistics, and information technology to create tools to process and analyze biological data. Computational biology is the advancement of understanding of living systems through computation. 

Overview

In practice, the two fields overlap, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. The skills of both are used by researchers who want to be able to develop their own tools and methods to explore and process data in the service of new discoveries; analysts who process data for others; and software engineers who write the software that researchers and analysts use.

Content

Bioinformatics program at Illinois Institute of Technology blends courses in biology, chemistry, and physics with courses in programming, statistics, and other methods, producing graduates who are both strong in science, and strong in the ability to develop and use tools to process data to advance knowledge of science.

Our program is scientifically rigorous, particularly in the physical sciences, while providing students with in-demand programming and other skills. It features a solid, balanced offering in STEM courses, while other programs may be more biased in one direction (biology) or the other (computer science).

Courses include programming in Perl, C++ and Java; data structure and algorithms; data mining; statistics; human biology; genetics; genomics and transcriptomics; and more.
