Welcome to Professional Science Master's (PSM) in Bioinformaticsand Computational Molecular Biology
Our bioinformatics PSM degree is a non-thesis option with professional training, combining advanced studies in computational molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and statistics utilizing state-of-the-art facilities, such as our Bioinformatics Computing Laboratory (BCL). Studies offer extensive training on DNA and protein sequence and structural analysis, gene expression and proteomic data analysis, optimization and statistical methodologies, data mining, algorithm design, and database development.
Since the launch of the Bioinformatics Program in 2001, we have established internship opportunities with companies, centers, and other institutions in biotechnology, biomedical science and pharmaceutical industry using bioinformatics computing tools. This internship experience is required in our PSM degree program to enhance employment prospects of our PSM graduates. The Texas resident graduate tuition is $1,716 per semester, the non-resident tuition cost is $4,021 per semester (for 10 credit hours).
