EXPLORE THE OPPORTUNITIES
The Bioinformatics Program at Mississippi Valley State University invites you to its STEM-U-late Institute (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics University – Leveraging Analytical Technologies for Education). The Program is designed to give aspiring students the opportunity to explore the field of bioinformatics through the integration of mathematics, computer science and molecular biology. STEM-U-late Scholars will be introduced to the interdisciplinary nature of the bioinformatics through the illustration and use of scientific and computational components of bioinformatics and data mining techniques as they relate to the agri-/aquaculture and health. Participants will be engaged in topics ranging from the analysis of medical/biomedical data, talking with leading scientists, and conducting genomic analyses.
