General Overview PSM in Bioinformatics

The Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering (GSBSE) has developed a new online Professional Science Masters program in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is the application of mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches to understand biological processes. The PSM in bioinformatics is an online program and includes interdisciplinary classes across the fields of mathematics, computer science, spatial information science and engineering, and molecular and cell biology. GSBSE faculty from the University of Maine, the Jackson Laboratory, Mt. Desert Island Biological Laboratory, University of New England, University of Southern Maine and Maine Medical Center Research Institute will be teaching the courses for this online degree program. The PSM provides an opportunity for advanced training directly relevant to current knowledge for their professional careers. Students entering the program are expected to come from a cell and molecular biology background and require more intensive training in math, computer, and information science, or from the mathematics, computer or information sciences disciplines and need training in cell and molecular biology. The program requires fifteen credits of bioinformatics courses, nine credits of enrichment courses, and six credits of applied field experience. Graduates of the Professional Science Masters in Bioinformatics are prepared for a diverse range of careers in biotechnology, infectious diseases, pharmaceutical biomedical research, environmental sciences, and forensics to name a few. The professional component of the Program prepares our graduates for leadership roles in the commercial, government and non-profit markets. The program’s interdisciplinary approach, depending on the student’s background can prepare you for... [-]
