Intro to Computational Biology

Learn how to use code to decipher your biological code -- understand what makes you YOU

Code helps us talk to a computer. Computers speak in 1's and 0's. Genetic code is what makes us who we are today. Life speaks in A's, C's, T's, G's, and U's.

If your child is curious about understanding how we humans work inside...and is interested in learning how Python coding can lend a hand in understanding the world of DNA, RNA, and proteins… then this is the class to get started!

Computational Biology is a field that bridges the gap between biology and computer science. This is a chance to get a peek into the challenges scientists deal with every day, and where coding can help!

  • Grades 6-12
  • Precision medicine. DNA origami. Nanobots. The future of medicine is being transformed, and the field of computational biology is one that is more relevant today than ever. Students will touch on the core concepts of this field while exploring exciting applications using Python! For students who are interested in taking it, we recommend reading the genomics sessions of a high school biology text book before the class.
