Description:Life Sciences are becoming increasingly quantitative and analytical, and integrative. This program will train students to the fundamentals of Biology – with a focus on molecular biology – and will give them the computational and mathematical skills needed to handle and analyze large biological datasets.

The program fills an important gap in the undergraduate programs at McGill, as no existing program allows students to get a solid training in these tow increasingly interconnected fields.
