Welcome

Bioinformatics at UGA is unique!  Our program emerged from the biological sciences and a recognition that all life sciences and biotechnology were going to need to analyze vast quantities of data.  Thus, our program emphases the full data lifecycle from experimental design to choosing the appropriate technology to analysis with the proper statistics and algorithms.
Our mission is to facilitate cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in bioinformatics/computational biology and its application. We train graduate students to tackle complex biological problems which utilize omics or other complex data types. Our goal is for students to attain mastery and leadership in this new, rapidly evolving, interdisciplinary field. The IOB offers Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Bioinformatics and a Graduate Certificate in Bioinformatics to students enrolled in other graduate programs at UGA.
