CBD Logo

A new addition for Fall 2015 is 02-403/02-703 Special Topics in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology: Quantitative Mass Spectometry-Based Proteomics, taught by Professor Joern Dengjel, a visiting professor in CBD from the University of Freiburg and the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies. Dr. Dengjel is a recognized leader in the study of organelle and dynamic proteomics.The undergraduate version of Programming for Scientists (02-201) will add a recitation section to provide additional guidance in developing programming skills and will be separated from the masters level 02-601.The popular Algorithms in Nature course (02-422/02-722), taught by Professor Ziv Bar-Joseph will return in Spring 2016. The course focuses on biologically-inspired computational algorithms.

Quantitative Cell and Molecular Biology Laboratory (02-261), which was previously taught in the Fall, will be taught in Spring 2016. This course meets the lab requirement for CS majors. Space is limited, so enroll early!

For those planning ahead, a new course on Computational Biology in Medicine (02-518) will be offered in Spring 2016.
