Ben Gurion University, Math & CS Dept.

--------

Bioinformatics Track - Decrease load

Because of the heavy burden in the recommended schedule - this is another recommended schedule but with decrease load that spread upon 7 semesters (instead of 6).

* The order of this two courses can be swapped.

# Students who studied for five units in physics or chemistry for "Bagrut" do not need to take the corresponding introductory courses.

& for students who luck the knowledge of E-mail, Internet , Windows.

** instead of this course you can take Mini Project in Bio-Informatics  - number 205- 19361.

 

 

List of additional courses recommended for those students spanning their studies through 4 years. The list is in descending order of relevance to the track.
