Systems and Information Biology (BSc)
Why does one person develop a debilitating disease early in life while another lives to be 100? How can we engineer microbes to produce new drugs or develop sustainable technologies? How can we develop better conservation strategies based on our understanding of the genetic diversity within a species?
The potential to explore these questions has exploded in our modern age of big data and data analytics. Thanks to advances in scientific and digital technologies, we can now collect vast amounts of information about biological systems, revolutionizing our ability to understand the world around us. But in order to access the insights offered by massive data sets, researchers need the language and tools of computer science.
The BSc in Systems and Information Biology will place you at the rich intersection of biology and computer science. Through lectures, labs and research projects, you will learn how to use computational and bioinformatic approaches to explore the biological sciences. Depending on your path through the program, you will learn about:

    • molecular and cell biology
    • computer coding and algorithms relevant to the biological sciences
    • genomics and biological data sciences
    • mathematics, statistics, and modelling
    • ecology and evolutionary biology

    About University

    COVID-19 Information: https://www.concordia.ca/covid19info.html

    Concordia is an English-language university in the heart of the world-class city of Montreal, Canada. From classroom to lab, in our libraries and on our streets, the Concordia community is resolutely anchored to the real world — open and engaged, compassionate and caring. We are recognized for our flexible approach to learning, and for our commitment to examining societal issues from a broad perspective in our teaching and research. It’s an approach that is rooted in Concordia’s founding in 1974, which brought together Loyola College (1896) and Sir George Williams University (1926).

    Nearly 48,000 students are pursuing their educational and research goals at Concordia. The University is made up of four Faculties (Arts and Science, Fine Arts, the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science and the John Molson School of Business), a School of Graduate Studies and a Centre for Continuing Education. We encourage our students to become active, critical and concerned citizens in order to enrich the world’s wealth of knowledge, bridge communities and, most importantly, grow and contribute. We call our approach “next-generation” — examining the issues of the day and seizing opportunities with a diversity of thought and an openness of spirit.

    Our philosophy includes complementing classroom time with practical, real-life experience. It means being engaged in research opportunities, athletics, professional networking, alumni mentoring and more. It also means being connected to friends and dedicated professors in a remarkable urban environment that will make students feel right at home.
