The minor in Computational Biology consists of 21 credit hours in the Life and Computing Sciences. A grade of C- or better must be earned in all required courses.
Besides required courses, students wishing to minor in Computational Biology must complete a senior thesis, either by registering for UNIV 401 and UNIV 402, or through department sponsored research (e.g. BISC 466, independent study). One Life Science and one Computing Science faculty member must direct the research. The senior thesis committee must be composed of the two research directors and one additional member chosen in consultation with the two research directors. At least one of the members of the committee must be a faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences.
The course requirements for the minor including all prerequisites for the courses are as follows:
(Prerequisites: BISC 207, CHEM 103, CHEM 104, one semester of organic chemistry)
Molecular Biology of the Cell
(Prerequisites: CISC 181 or CISC 120 and CISC 105)
(Corequisites: MATH 210 or MATH 242)
(Prerequisite: CISC 220)
(Prerequisite: Permission of the Instructor)
