Computational Science and Genetics Dual Major
Part of the Bachelors of Economics/Science program
Commencing semesters, 2017
School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences
Why study Computational Science and Genetics?
Would you like to unravel the genetic basis of disease? Or simulate how our environment affects the expression of our genes? What if you could create an interactive map of the human genome?
Computational Science is an interdisciplinary field which uses skills from mathematics and information technology to tackle real-world scientific problems which can only be solved through computation.
Genetics is transforming our understanding of life through knowledge of inheritance, gene structure and expression, the genetic basis of traits, and the interaction between genes and the environment. Computational analysis of genome sequences is allowing unprecedented discoveries in areas as diverse as human medicine, agriculture, conservation biology and biotechnology.
In this dual major, you will learn to construct realistic mathematical models and simulations, perform quantitative analysis of scientific problems using computers, and develop skills to solve real challenges in genetics.
