The Quantitative and Computational Biology Department offers a Master of Science in Quantitative and Computational Biology (MQCB), which integrates quantitative graduate courses from the Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics and Astronomy departments.

Students will gain additional skills across these disciplines that prepare them well for advanced graduate-level work, MD/PhD programs at top universities and/or jobs in industries at the intersection of biotechnology and software.

The QCB Department also offers a Masters of Science in Computational Molecular Biology, which is designed to attract recent graduates in either mathematics, statistics, biology or computer science, or scientists and engineers interested in retraining. A commercial or laboratory internship is required.

Students will be prepared for employment in the rapidly expanding areas of computational molecular biology and bioinformatics. The program has two tracks, appropriate for different undergraduate backgrounds: biology and mathematical science.
