At the heart of data science and computational biology is the ability to transform large and complex data into simplified and cohesive concepts. As a result, computing, mathematical and statistical skills are some of the top skills required to be successful in these areas. As we progress in the technology era the amount of data generated continues to increase and the need for data scientists in all sectors grows simultaneously. If you are interested in finding our more about these fields, we invite you join the discussion with our diverse panel who will speak about the educational background and training as well as skills necessary for success within their respective fields.
