  1. Hello everyone! I hope you all are well as you can be, considering everything 2020 has collectively thrown at us. I saw posts about computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology programs for previous years but there is nothing posted for the 2021 cycle. I thought I'd be nice to get things started for this cycle - it was great read through previous posts for those interested in more computationally-inclined programs. It'd be nice to hear about everyone's thoughts on where they are applying to and to hear about news/updates/tips anyone has as well as we progress with application
  2. Hi, everyone! I am new here and hoping y'all could provide some guidance. I will be graduating this December with a B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in statistics. Deciding what I want to do with my life has taken a looooong time, but I finally figured out my passions/interests: computational biology. As of right now, I am planning on attending graduate school in the Fall of 2021, provided I actually get accepted anywhere. Because my interest in the field did not come about until within the last year, so I have very little background in biology (as in...I'm taking an intro bio course this fall
  3. Hi everyone! I got offers from Columbia''s Department of Systems Biology and the Computational Biology program at Sloan Kettering. I'm having a hard time choosing. My interests are in systems and computational biology, structural biology, and using / applying machine learning. Does anyone here have experience with these two institutions? The fact that Columbia is a full-fledged university with CS and math departments is a draw, but I"m not sure really how important a factor that is. I'm curious what the departments/institutions are like, the quality of research, how they're perceived externall
  4. I’m interested in pursuing research in computational and systems biology (not really sure how much of each, and maybe structural biology would be nice too) and I’m somewhat restricted to staying in the NYC area. Right now I’m primarily considering Sloan Kettering and Columbia. Any thoughts on which one is better and/or more prestigious?
  5. this is for people like me who despise the toxic gradcafe forums and just want to know whether they should begin focusing their attn to programs they still have a shot at instead of being left hanging by programs that don't tell you about rejections/completed offers. No stats, no chancing - private message or start a new thread if you want to do that (:
  6. Hi Folks, I just received my PHD offer from both CMU CPCB program and Cornell Computational Biology program in Ithaca and I really have a tough time deciding which school I should go. My past research majorly focusing on human genetic field and I would like to continue my research within this specific field. Both school have some professor that I would like to work with but it seems like each school have different focus. Really want to hear opinions about pros and cons about coming to these schools. Thanks for the time!!
  7. Got unofficial acceptance today. Join if you are on the same boat 🙂
  8. Hi all, Hope everything is well for all of you! Congrats for those who got their invitations and offers! I'm not sure if there's anyone in looking at this post and is at the same stage as me: got nothing but only rejection letters (5/9). I applied for 9 PhD programs and haven't heard from Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and UCB, but I see in the cafe that many people have got their invitations, and the interview dates are reasonably close. (One of the disadvatages I have is that I'm an international student, thus we are considered separately because of funding issue.) As a resu
  9. International student who lacks math/CS coursework looking at PhD bioinformatics programs. I have too many top tier programs in my list, and am looking for "safe schools" to add. However, given where I'm coming from, are any schools really "safe"? Also, any suggestions as to how I should proceed with my non-math/CS background are welcome. Thanks for the help!

  11. Hello everybody! I am a Biochemistry major and was initially intending to double major in Computer Science, but due to some issues I will be 4 classes short of a Computer Science major to graduate on time, so I will graduate with a Biochemistry major and Computer Science minor. I have done synthetic organic chemistry for one year in my school, then I did biochemistry research (isolating a bacterial compound) during one summer in my school, and another summer I did biomedical research in another school (investigating immune responses to a gut bacteria secretion). I enjoy biomedical re

  13. Not sure if this is the right place to post my question, but if there are any biomath/math/bio people hanging around your help would be very appreciated. I am a second-year undergrad at a large state university trying to plan out a course of study that will prepare me well for graduate school for biomathematics. I am considering doing a double-degree in math and biology. I am also involved in undergraduate research. I'm trying to make sure I take all the classes I need, and also that I graduate in a timely manner. I have heard that five years is ok as long as they don't think you're doin

  16. Hey all! Just thought we should start a thread for Comp Bio/Bioinformatics/Biomedical Informatics to track all of the programs and what's going on and stop us from hunting everywhere for news! =). I applied to 12 schools and the only one I have heard back from, so far, is Duke Computational Biology/Bioinformatics - interviews Feb 9-12 or Feb 19-20.
  17. Dear grad cafe, I've posted on the questions forum, but I had no luck there so I'm posting here again. This is my first post on this cafe and wanted to ask how good is university of maryland's computational biology, bioinformatics and genomics program compared to other schools in the US. I have been offered admission for their BISI's program and also got a dean's fellowship with my package, so the offer seems nice. One thing I forgot to mention on the questions forum was that this is the only school that I have been accepted to and wondering about the s
  18. Got accepted into UCLA (Bioinformatics Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program) and UNC (Bioinformatics and Computational Biology - BCB). Also to Baylor College of Medicine but will probably chose between the first two. Any opinions/recommendations?
  19. Hi guys, Received two offers from Yale (Computational biology and bioinformatics) and Penn (Genomics and computational biology), I'd like to do research in human genetics and complex diseases using computational/statistical methods. Still hesitated between these two programs, anybody familiar with the GCB program? Based on my knowledge, many professors under this program are doing wet-labs and professors doing interdisciplinary research are usually assistant prof. Could anyone give me any suggestion on the choice between these two programs? Thanks a lot!!!!

  21. Hi everyone, I am mostly looking at four programs that accepted me in Computational Biology: Berkeley, UCSF, UChicago, Columbia Never studied or interned at any of them before so I am hoping to know more about them outside the website~ I am most likely in academia, but I wonder for Computational Biology in general, which school might be a best fit, and what to avoid. In general as far as I know: Berkeley great for bio and cs. young. in Bay. UCSF top biomed. expensive but in Bay. less known in pan-science than biomed.
  22. Hello Everyone, From the results section I can see many results related to Bioinformatics and Computational Biology are rolling in. Assuming they are not fake results posted by trolls, I am eager to hear about your results and interview experiences. If you have applied for PennState Bioinformatics and Genomics PhD programme, I would specially like to hear your experience since there are already several acceptances from that programme on the result board. Great luck for people who have not heard anything from any programme yet!
  23. I am considering the following computational biology/bioinformatics graduate programs: UCSF: Bioinformatics UCLA: Bioinformatics CMU: Joint CMU-Pitt Computational Biology UCSD: Bioinformatics and Systems Biology How would you compare these programs to each other (i.e. how do you rank them)? I appreciate your advice. Thanks so much!
  24. Hi Guys, It’s so inspiring to hear everyone’s stories. Good luck to everyone! I wanted to introduce myself to see if anyone is making a similar journey, or has any opinions. I’m a 25 year old medical doctor from Australia, and just finished my internship 4 months ago. I’m planning to apply to Masters of Science / professional masters programs this year for 2017 mid-year entry. I’m considering bioinformatics / computational biology, or computational neuroscience, or some field in computer science. Since high school, I’ve done a Bachelor of Scie
  25. I am an Applied Math and Bioinformatics double major looking to apply to top-tier PhD programs in Bioinformatics this fall. I was recently offered a data scientist/machine learning role in a large tech company for the summer. I have conducted research in machine learning applications to computational biology for the past two summers, worked in a laboratory for about 2 years, and was recently offered a spot in the Amgen Scholars program at my own university this summer. I want to conduct research in machine learning for biological applications, so this internship is a great opportunity to see t
