New Computational Biology major for BSc

For 2016, the University of Melbourne has launched a new major in Computational Biology for the Bachelor of Science.

The burgeoning field of computational biology brings together the mathematical, biological, life and computational sciences to solve complex biological problems in the age of big data. The University of Melbourne is a leader in this field, with world-renowned researchers and access to cutting-edge infrastructure like the super computer housed at the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI).

Subjects available in the major include Biological Modelling and Simulation, Statistical Genomics and Principles of Neuroscience. A computational biology major can lead to further study such as the Master of Science (Bioinformatics) and careers in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, environmental sciences, genomics and more.
