Two Missouri Universities to Add Bioinformatics Degrees or Concentrations

A previous version of this article incorrectly reported that the RockhurstUniversity and the University of Missouri-Kansas City are located in Kansas. In fact, they are based in Missouri.

NEW YORK, March 12 (GenomeWeb News) - The Rockhurst University in Kansas Cityhas begun offering a master's degree in bioinformatics this fall, according to a local media report.

The University of Missouri-Kansas City also will also begin a bioinformatics concentration within its biological science and computer science programs, according to the Kansas City Star.
