Genomics and Bioinformatics at Davidson

The mission of the Genomics and Bioinformatics department is to expand students' understanding of biology to incorporate bioinformatic and genomic methods for asking questions, collecting data, and solving problems.

Students who participate in the program will: 1) pursue careers of their choosing that use their interdisciplinary training; 2) analyze complex datasets to discern patterns and detect connections between seemingly unrelated biological events; and 3) communicate complex, data-rich information clearly and concisely.
