Minor in Bioinformatics and Genomics

The University of Texas at Tyler has a new undergraduate minor in Bioinformatics and Genomics! This might be a good option for you if you're an undergraduate in biology or computer science and are interested in learning about the analysis of large-scale biological data.

Take a look at About bioinformatics and Bioinformatics Skills to get a better idea of what the field entails.

Classes required for minor:
Some classes may count as a University Core class, representative classes will count towards a Biology or Computer Science major. Classes marked with an asterisk (*) are prerequisites for other classes in the minor.

I'll be teaching two classes, Genomics and Bioinformatics. Click on the links below to see how I'm developing the courses.
