Data science is a strategic opportunity for the College of Science. By making strategic investments in mathematics, statistics and life sciences faculty, the College has extended its impact of data science on transdisciplinary research. In a science-without-borders approach, the College is deepening engagement between data science and other sciences, engineering, education, arts and business. Cluster hiring in bioinformatics across disciplines has brought expertise in mathematical biology; ecological, evolutionary, and functional properties of the microbiome; and deep sequencing data.
