If you enjoy solving complex programming problems and have a penchant for the biological sciences, you will feel at home in Rowan's Bioinformatics program. As part of your studies you will combine a set of methods with your programming savvy to extract results from large sets of biological data. As a bioinformatician, you might study human diseases, find new, more powerful drugs, or unlock the secret biology of an organism. Stepping into bioinformatics is easier than you might think: learning a few lines of programming code puts genomes at your fingertips.
You may be thinking that this may seem like the job of the future, but those jobs are here today. The current job market in bioinformatics is booming, and those with a combined expertise in biology, chemistry and computer programming will be needed more and more.
