* For Thesis-based students, this list is a recommended list. Students may consider courses from the core M.BINF. list, such as BINF*6410 and BINF*6970. Courses not from either of these lists can also be considered. Students should request approval from the graduate coordinator if they wish to take any electives not on the list and apply the course for credit towards their program. Current students are encouraged to speak with their Advisory Committee and the Graduate Coordinator regarding electives.
