ACPFG are looking for motivated students with good grades (credit average and above) with one or more of the following backgrounds:

  • Computational Science
  • Mathematics
  • Statistics
  •  Engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Biochemistry OR
  • Molecular Biology

Students don’t need biology to enter the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology field!  While a basic understanding helps, it’s possible to pick up the biology along the way.

Please be aware that the different ACPFG Bioinformatics and Computational Biology nodes all have slightly different entry requirements.
