By acquiring the basic tools in mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, and computing in a biological context, you add depth and breadth to a more traditional major in biology, computer science, or mathematics. This gives you a competitive edge when applying to graduate or medical schools or seeking employment in industries at the intersection of the mathematical and biological sciences.
