Bioinformatics addresses public health from the basis of genomics, proteomics, and epigenomics using applied data analysis. The Certificate Program in Bioinformatics gives students from outside of this field additional expertise to better address the issues in their particular area of study. The program adds value to the student’s field of study, giving them an additional tool in their public health tool box, useful in research, other academic settings, or in a professional career.
Offered by: Department of Global Biostatistics and Data Science
Faculty Lead: Jian Li, PhD
The Certificate in Bioinformatics provides students who are pursuing an MPH, MSPH, MPH&TM, or MHA in another area with additional expertise in bioinformatics methodology in the fields of genomics, proteomics, and epigenomics applied data analysis.
This certificate program is designed for current MPH/MSPH/MPH&TM/MHA students who are not pursuing the Master of Science in Bioinformatics. The certificate is a complement to degrees in other areas.
Students who earn the Certificate in Bioinformatics will be able to:
Number of Credits Required for Completion: 15
One of the following:
BIOS 6230 SAS
BIOS 6240 SPSS
BIOS 6280 STATA
One or two of the following 7000 level Bioinformatics Electives (3):
NOTE: If BIOS 6040 is required for the major, two 7000-level Bioinformatics Electives (6 credits) are required for the certificate.
Students should consult with their academic advisor to determine which certificate best fits their professional and academic goals and how best to plan their graduate course schedule.
