Computational Biology and BioInformatics

MS Bioinformatics Program | PhD Bioinformatics Program | Online Application | Pre-Application

The study of bioinformatics and computational biology in the School of Biological Sciences includes the areas of development of new computational methods for studying organization and evolution of genes and genomes, computational approaches to macromolecular structure and dynamics, comparative evolutionary genomics, and prediction and analysis of structure.

The School of Biological Sciences at Georgia Tech proposed and established a professional Master of Science in Bioinformatics degree program in 1999-the first of its kind in the United States. The interdisciplinary program consists of unique combination of courses. The graduates are taught with the equal strength to several scientific disciplines and are prepared for further successful work in industry or academy.

Georgia Tech is now broadening its scope to include a formal PHD program in bioinformatics and computational biology. To further strengthen teaching and research collaborations between the faculty and participating in this program, the Georgia Tech Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology has been recently formed. Seminars, symposia, meetings and events also include participating faculty from Emory University and University of Georgia.
