To harness the unique educational and research training opportunities offered by the campus-wide Bioinformatics effort, several UCSD doctoral graduate programs offer students the option to develop – within their own doctoral degree program – a curriculum and research training that has an emphasis in Bioinformatics. Such students may then qualify to earn a Ph.D. degree from their respective doctoral Program with a Specialization in Bioinformatics.
A "Specialization" is a formal University of California mechanism that allows a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in the UC System to obtain the Doctoral equivalent of a minor in a particular area of specialization. Students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. with a Specialization in Bioinformatics will satisfy the Core Curriculum requirement of the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Graduate Program and pursue research that involves Bioinformatics with an advisor and/or co-advisor who is a training faculty of the BISB and BMI track.
The following Graduate Programs offer a Specialization in Bioinformatics: Bioengineering, Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics.
|BE77||Bioengineering with specialization in Bioinformatics|
|BI80||Biology with a specialization in Bioinformatics|
|BS76||Biomedical Sciences with specialization in Bioinformatics|
|CH77||Chemistry with specialization in Bioinformatics|
|CS78||Computer Science with specialization in Bioinformatics|
|MA78||Mathematics with specialization in Bioinformatics|
|PY78||Physics with specialization in Bioinformatics|
