Education in the United States
From Bioinformatics.Org Wiki
The University of California at San Diego offers a Bioinformatics graduate programme and there is now a new bachelor's program. This is an undergraduate, interdisciplinary program for undergraduates leading to a B.S. degree. The new Bioinformatics major is offered by the Division of Biology, and the departments of Chemistry/Biochemistry, Computer Science and Engineering, and Bioengineering. A student may choose to major in Bioinformatics in any one of the four departments or division. The Division of Biology currently offers two Bioinformatics courses, and with the advent of the cross-disicplinary major, even more courses are going to be taught 2002-03 and 2003-04.
The College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of California, Riverside is developing a "Center in Genomics and Bioinformatics" which will offer a PhD curriculum in genomics and bioinformatics from academic year 2001-2002 onwards.

The University at Buffalo has been involved in establishing a "Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics". It used to a range of courses in bioinformatics and related subjects, but all the course links seem to be dead now.
Cornell and Rockefeller Universities, together with the Sloan-Kettering Research Institute offer a "Tri-institutional program in Computational Biology and Medicine".
The College of Staten Island, part of the City University of New York also offers a challenging program in bioinformatics.
Duke University's Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (housed in the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy) offers various bioinformatics programmes, including a PhD program.
There is a relatively new Biomedical Informatics program in Ohio. Though the department stands alone, it is in the College of Medicine at the Ohio State Medical Center. Entrance is offered through a new Integrated Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program.
The University of Toledo offers a masters degree or certificate through its Program in Bioinformatics & Proteomics/Genomics (BPG). There is also a pending pipeline program that will give a bachelors degree in Biological Sciences and a Masters in BPG in a total of as little as 5.5 years. The UT BPG program is part of a statewide consortium coordinated by the Ohio Supercomputer Center. Visit the BPG website.
The University of Pennsylvania offers some of the best known and longest established bioinformatics programmes at Batchelor's, Master's and PhD levels. Georgetown University is planning bioinformatics courses too.
Carnegie Mellon University and University of Pittsburgh offer a joint PhD through their computational biology program.
The Keck Center for Computational Biology---a joint venture of Baylor College of Medicine; University of Houston; Rice University; University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston; M.D. Anderson Cancer Center; and University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston---offers undergraduate (not 2003) and graduate level training in Computational Biology.
