Translational Bioinformatics Application Track
teaches students how to apply bioinformatics and genetics analyses to solve translational problems arising from biological data. Students are introduced to bioinformatics and statistical genetics and gain hands-on experience with tools and data. Students must demonstrate competency in
understanding basic genetics and nature of different types of genetic and phenotypic data,
design and implementation of algorithms to solve problems in genomic analysis, precision medicine, and translational research,
integration of computational genomics findings and statistical genetics analyses with medicine (translation) via clinical decision support, database design, and human factors.
Trainees specialize in large-scale genomic analysis, precision medicine, or translational research.
