Crossing the interdisciplinary barrier: a baccalaureate computer science option in bioinformatics

  title={Crossing the interdisciplinary barrier: a baccalaureate computer science option in bioinformatics},
  author={Travis E. Doom and Michael L. Raymer and Dan E. Krane and Oscar Garcia},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Education},
Bioinformatics is a new and rapidly evolving discipline that has emerged from the fields of experimental molecular biology and biochemistry, and from the the artificial intelligence, database, pattern recognition, and algorithms disciplines of computer science. Largely because of the inherently interdisciplinary nature of bioinformatics research, academia has been slow to respond to strong industry and government demands for trained scientists to develop and apply novel bioinformatic techniques… CONTINUE READING
