Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Programs
Degree: Master
Field of Study: BioinformaticsComputer Science
Description The collaborative program in bioinformatics combines the research strength of the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. Bioinformatics is an emerging and increasingly important scientific discipline dedicated to the pursuit of fundamental questions about the structure, function and evolution of biological entities through the design and application of computational approaches. Fundamental research in these areas is expected to increase our understanding of human health and disease which translates into innovation in industry. Bioinformaticians today must be able to appreciate significant research in other fields and therefore require an understanding of the basic principles of other disciplines. To meet this challenge Carleton University and the University of Ottawa offer a collaborative program leading to a master of computer science degree with specialization in Bioinformatics.
