Bioinformatics Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Agriculture

 The goal of the Bioinformatics minor is to increase career opportunities for our graduates and also to meet a critical need of Indiana’s stakeholders. Analysis of ongoing trends in scientific publications indicates that bioinformatics is nearly as important as biochemistry as a discipline and has led to a call for inclusion of bioinformatics courses in standard curriculums related to biology (Journal of Microbiology and Biology Education, December 2015, p198-202).

In recognition of the importance and transformative potential of data-driven fields such as bioinformatics, Purdue recently created the Integrative Data Science Initiative to promote data science-enabled research and education.
