Masters of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics


California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) is offering a Master's Program in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. The Master of Science in Biotechnology and Bioinformatiics degree seeks to provide the student with broad training and education in Scientific principles and knowledge underlying advances in biotechnology in:

Basic laboratory techniques in research and development

Legal and intellectual property issues

Skills and attributes important in business and bioentrepreneurship

Curriculum

The curriculum is designed for completion in two years and requires a team project in an academic or industry location. With the wide range of flexibility, students are able to create their program to fit their specific needs. Students admitted to the program can choose between a biotechnology or a bioinformatics track. The MS degree is offered by the Biology program in collaboration with the Computer Science, Business and Economics program. Backed by Alfred P. Sloan foundation funding, the masters' program addresses the needs of students and industry through rigorous interdisciplinary training. General Objectives for the MS in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics
