Modern mathematics, computer science, and web-based collaboration techniques have revolutionized the field of biological research, forever changing the ways researchers do their work. The Bioinformatics Program creates systems to aid the modern biological researcher in collecting, analyzing, annotating, and presenting data. Additionally, we assist the new post-genomic scientist/technician to perform advanced pattern based probability studies for gene discovery, mapping, and function identification.
Our cutting edge tools are used by scientists from all over the world to delve into the new fields only now being created by the post-genomic revolution. Applications created by the Bioinformatics Program allow scientists to perform advanced "virtual experiments" never thought possible in the wet-lab.
The Bioinformatics Program is a division of the Human and Molecular Genetics Center (HMGC). The Medical College of Wisconsin offers a Master of Science in Bioinformatics. This program is offered jointly by Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
