I am looking for any information that anyone can give me about doing either a
Master's degree or a PhD in the field of Bioinformantics.
I know of at least four graduate programs with explicit emphasis on
* University of Pittsburgh (in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon). A new program
in computational biology, funded by the Keck Foundation. For information on
that program, contact Bruce Buchanan (buchanan at cs.pitt.edu).
* George Mason University. A new program in Computational Science and
Informatics. [I am currently teaching the bioinformatics course there.] For
more information, contact Harold Morowitz (hmorowitz at gmuvax.gmu.edu).
* Washington State University, Pullman. A program in computational science
including biology that has been going for at least three years. For more
information, contact Keith Dunker (dunker at bobcat.csc.wsu.edu).
* Washington University, St. Louis. They have just instituted a new Institute
for Biological Computing, which will begin admitting students next fall. For
more information contact David States (states at wucs1.wustl.edu).
In addition, there are some longstanding programs in medical informatics that
now include some emphasis on computational biology:
* Stanford Medical School. One nation's best medical informatics program,
recently hired Russ Altman to teach computational biology. For information,
contact Ted Shortliffe (shortliffe at sumex-aim.stanford.edu)
* Yale Medical School. Also has expanded its informatics program to include
computational biology. For information, contact Perry Miller
(miller at med.yale.edu)
And there are many departments of computer science or biology which offer the
possibility of pursuing studies in computational biology. This is certainly
not an exhaustive list. My appologies to anyone I left out.
