About the program

The Biological and Medical Informatics (BMI) Graduate Program at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) prepares scientists to use tools from mathematics to physics and from chemistry to biology to gather, store, analyze, predict, and disseminate information about biology. The field is essential, for without quantitative analysis of the massive and growing amounts of biological data generated by various systems, biology and -omics data cannot be interpreted or exploited.

The program offers an optional designated emphasis in Complex Biological Systems (CBS).
