Masters of Science in Bioinformatics University of Arkansas At Little Rock



Course info


The Department of Information Science seeks to expand human and technical capabilities through information in a world where information is of central importance to personal, organizational, social, political, technical, and economic progress. Information Science makes sense of the data that people gather through information technology. The programs that reside in the Department of Information Science focus on the transformation of data to information and knowledge, to intelligence and application, and on the technologies and systems that store and access the data in ways that impart its meaning.

The Masters degree assures that the student meets the breadth requirement for the graduate program in bioinformatics. While an integral research aspect is incorporated into the Masters degree, the degree is primarily course oriented and focused on preparing students to take on research in one of four key areas: drug design, integrated bioinformatics and genomics, computational biology, and biomedical informatics.
