About the course
We offer a four-year Honours Bachelor of Science (Honours BSc) (Bioinformatics Major) and a non-entry four-year Bachelor of Science (BSc) (Bioinformatics Major). Core courses in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science provide an understanding of the complex interactions in living systems, the physical and chemical nature of the living environment and the impact each have on the other. The first year of the program is an introduction to the science involved in studying Bioinformatics. Each successive year increasingly emphasizes the application of previously learned principles to living systems.Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary course of study with emphasis on the integrated use of tools from mathematics, computer science, biology, chemistry and physics to the scientific understanding of biological systems. In essence, it is the application of information technology to the field of biology, and in particular, molecular biology. Bioinformatics entails the creation and advancement of databases, algorithms, computational and statistical techniques, and theory to solve formal and practical problems arising from the management and analysis of biological data.
