Several people have written:
I am interested in pursuing doctoral degree in Computational Biology. I
am looking for schools which offer programs in this area.
Here's my list. Perhaps Una could add this to the FAQ?

I know of at least six 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)
or John Evans (jevans at gmuvax2.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).
* W.M. Keck Center for Computational Biology, in Houston, TX. A
collaborative effort between Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine,
and the University of Houston, has been offering graduate studies in
computational biology since 1990. For more information, contact George
Phillip, Jr. (georgep at rice.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).
* Stanford Medical School. One of the nation's best medical informatics
programs, recently hired Russ Altman to teach computational biology. For
information, contact Ted Shortliffe (shortliffe at sumex-aim.stanford.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; I
welcome updates and corrections!
