  • Course description

    Candidates for the Master's degree in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics are expected to complete four 0.5 credit classes and two credited seminar classes. The class selection must be made to further the candidate's existing strengths, and to provide the necessary background to successfully meet the thesis requirements.

    The thesis must be reviewed by the supervisor(s) and up to two readers to meet the breadth requirement. These requirement states that: 1) at least one of the readers evaluate the biological aspect of the research project and hails from a biological background (including, but not limited to, Biology and Biochemistry). 2) at least one of the readers evaluate the contribution of the thesis in either Mathematics, Statistics or Computer Science.
