Computational biology tools are key in understanding the COVID-19 epidemic
The Biotechnology Explorer Program teaches you how bioinformatics coupled with molecular genetics can be used to combat global pandemics. More specifically, you will acquire firsthand experience in computational approaches to determine the origin of outbreaks of SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, and SARS-COV-2.
You will acquire knowledge in:
- DNA sequencing
- How to analyze DNA sequences to figure out the origin and diversity of coronaviruses
- Genome browsers to identify important viral genes
- Apply 3D graphics to visualize viral proteins
If you’re interested in science and innovation, apply for the Biotechnology Explorer Program at Carnegie Mellon Qatar. You’ll get firsthand experience in computational biology tools.
Along the way, you’ll learn more about the Biological Sciences Program at CMU-Q and meet with our faculty and students.
Applications are now open.
