Statistics for Computational Biology
Computational biology is an area of key strategic interest for interdisciplinary research and for employers in pharmaceuticals, advanced agriculture and in public health. The use of statistics in this area is essential. This course is run jointly between mathematics, computer science, and biological sciences, providing an excellent point of entry to this growing area for graduates in any of the 3 constituent disciplines.
BSc or BA Honours degree (high 2.2) in a related subject (such as biology, computer science, software engineering or mathematics) at undergraduate level and an accompanying reference. We consider applicants with other experience which gives an equivalent basis for entry.
Modules include: statistical concepts; methods and tools; statistical techniques; programming for scientists; machine learning; concepts in biology; and a dissertation.
The programme comprises 180 credits. There are 120 credits of taught modules completed during Semester 1 and Semester 2. This is followed by a research dissertation (60 credits) in semester 3
