Program Principles & Goals

The PhD Program in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CBB) is an integrative, multi-disciplinary training program that encompasses the study of biology using computational and quantitative methods. In and out of the classroom, students learn to apply the tools of statistics, mathematics, computer science and informatics to biological problems. The vibrant and innovative Duke research in these fields provides exciting interactions between biological and computational scientists. Because the Program in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics is based in the Duke Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology, it offers a unique opportunity for students to become one of tomorrow's leaders in genome sciences.
