To gain admission to the major, students must achieve a minimum 2.7 GPA in all Premajor math courses, a minimum 2.7 GPA in all Premajor courses and, and a minimum grade of C in all Premajor courses.
Computational & Systems Biology (CaSB)
Basic Sciences & Computation
Biology – LS7A, 7B, 7C
Chemistry – 14A, 14B, 14BL or 20A, 20B, 20L
Physics – 5A, 5B, 5C or 1A, 1B, 1C
Mathematics – 31A, B, 33A, 33B or LS30A, 30B, Math 32T, 33A, 33B
Computation – PIC 10A or CS 31
NOTES: Students who take LS30A, LS30B before entering the CaSB Premajor can take Math M32T to transition to Math 33A, 33B.
The Computers & Biosystems Concentration, Bioinformatics Concentration, and Biomedical Systems concentration require Math 32A. This math course does not have to be completed prior to admission to the Major, but it is strongly recommended that they be taken with the other required Premajor math courses.
PIC 10B + 10C, or CS 32 are required for the Computers & Biosystems and for the Bioinformatics Concentration, do not have to be completed prior to admission to the Major.
