Bioinformatics and computational biology refers to the application of computer science, statistics, mathematics and engineering to the analysis and interpretation of biological data. The graduate studies programs described on this web site provide training in areas ranging from the organization and management of data, the development of algorithms and software, and application of these approaches to questions in wide-ranging areas of biology. Learn about our programs at UBC and SFU and research and decide if applying to enter as a MSc or PhD student is right for you. All students receive a generous stipend with additional funding and special training opportunities available through our NSERC CREATE grant.
