The goal of the bioinformatics and computational biology training program is to train Ph.D. students in the background theory and biological application of information sciences (including computer science, statistics, mathematics and others) and to use this training to study problems relevant to biomedical research. Of particular interest, in light of emerging sources of biological data, are multi-scale (different levels of abstraction) and large-scale (data-intensive) problems in biology. The aim is to train a new class of scientist with a primary identity as a computational biologist/bioinformaticist, and whose disciplinary core draws from an emerging set of principles of how to compute, analyze and apply biological data.
The purpose of this scholarship is to foster research in information science by encouraging and assisting doctoral students in the field with their dissertation research.
