The Buffalo State DSA program is pleased to offer students the ability to focus their studies in their industry of choice. Your coursework will be tailored to your individual interests with topics which may include:
Prerequisite: 1 year undergraduate biology and 1 year undergraduate chemistry.
Introduction to bioinformatics concepts and techniques. Bioinformatics applications in academic, biotechnological, clinical and pharmaceutical settings for analyzing individual DSA and protein sequences. No formal computer programming training or high-level mathematical skills are required.
Prerequisite: One course in statistics.
Experimental design and statistical analysis of biological data; applications of computers to biological investigations. Designed for students in the initial stages of planning their research.
Explore real world data sets and make statistical inferences using an in-demand language used by professional data scientists. In this course students will use modern data science paradigms and statistics to analyze complex data and share their results through storytelling and visualizations.
The DSA Genomics Fellowship was recently established as a partnership between Buffalo State College and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. This fellowship seeks to increase the pool of genomic data scientists with an emphasis on increasing the diversity of professionals working in this field. This 15 month fellowship will provide tuition and fees for 30 credit hours and a $17,250 stipend to be paid over the full program (3 semesters + 1 summer).
