Dissertation regulations

March 7, 2015

The Yale graduate school regulations governing dissertations includes a paragraph that indicates that only two dissertation committee members need Yale appointments:

QT:{{
“Registered doctoral candidates must have a principal adviser with an appointment on the Graduate School faculty. The Graduate School requires that each dissertation be read by at least three persons but not more than five, at least two of whom are ladder or ladder-track faculty members at Yale. All readers must hold the Ph.D. degree as well as a faculty position or be considered otherwise qualified to evaluate the dissertation…”

Potential Classes for an Undergraduate Major in Bioinformatics

August 5, 2013

I list below a number of courses that I think should be
included/excluded from the undergrad bioinformatics program. This is based on a discussion with a student who did an undergraduate double major in CS and Biology.

The courses that I think essential for the program are:

– Algorithms, Data structures, Cell & Molecular biology, and Genetics

The courses that I think should be included in the program are:

– Discrete mathematics, Algorithms on strings, Computational complexity, Statistics, Data mining and Databases, Machine Learning, Biochemistry, Unix/Linux operating system, Scripting Languages (Perl and/or Python), and Scientific writing

The courses that I think might less important are:

– Computer architecture, Compiler theory, Circuit design, Inorganic chemistry, and Chemical engineering

Curious to get people’s thoughts on this. Feel free to comment or email me (http://contact.gerstein.info).
