Cheminformatics Option

Cheminformatics students at the University of Massachusetts Lowell complete a challenging interdisciplinary undergraduate education including courses in both life sciences and computer science.

Cheminformatics is the study of information contained within biological or chemical systems. Although originally associated with the analysis of genetic data produced by the sequencing of the human genome, the field of bio/cheminformatics has now widely expanded to include applications in medicine; public health; biotechnology; pharmaceutical research and development; and basic science.

Students major in biology, chemistry, computer science or mathematics and complement this background with courses form the three remaining areas. A Bachelor of Science degree in any of these four disciplines with an option in bio/cheminformatics can be earned in four years. 

Master’s and Doctorate programs are also available.
