1 Indiana University Chemical Informatics Programs Gary Wiggins

2 Cheminformatics Education at IU School of Informatics degree programs –BS, MS, PhD Graduate Certificate in Chemical Informatics Programs offered at both the Indianapolis (IUPUI) and Bloomington (IUB) campuses

3 Degree Programs: BS and MS BS degree –34 credit hours of Informatics courses –Cognate area, usually a minor in areas such as chemistry, biology, computer science, fine arts, business, etc. MS degree: 36 semester hours –IUB: Bioinformatics, Chemical Informatics, Human- Computer Interaction –IUPUI: also New Media, Health Informatics, Laboratory Informatics

4 IU Undergraduate Courses I371 Chemical Informatics (1 cr. hour) I372 Molecular Modeling (2 cr. hours)

5 Indiana University MS in Chemical Informatics Major aspects of chemical informatics –Information Acquisition: Methods for generating and collecting data empirically (experimentation) or from theory (molecular simulation) –Information Management: Storage and retrieval of information –Information Use: Data Analysis, correlation, and application to problems in the chemical and biochemical sciences

6 MS in Chemical Informatics: Coursework (36 credit hours) I501 Introduction to Informatics (3 cr. hrs.) I502 Information Management (3 cr. hrs.) I571 Chemical Information Technology (3 cr. hrs.) I572 Computational Chemistry and Molecular Modeling (3 cr. hrs.) Electives: 18 hrs., including (strongly recommended): –L519 Bioinformatics: Theory and Application (3 cr. hrs.) –L529 Bioinformatics in Molecular Biology and Genetics: Practical Applications (4 cr. hrs.) Capstone project (6 cr. hrs.)

7 PhD in Informatics Began in August 2005 Tracks: –bioinformatics; chemical informatics; health informatics; human-computer interaction design; social and organizational informatics Under development: –complex systems, networks, modeling and simulation; cybersecurity; discovery and application of information; logical and mathematical foundations; music informatics

8 Degree Programs: PhD in Informatics The 90 hours of credit for the PhD in Informatics (cheminformatics track) consist of: 27 hours of required informatics courses –I501 Introduction to Informatics (3 cr.) –Core informatics courses (9 cr.) –Seminars in the cheminformatics track (6 cr.) –Professionalism/Pedagogy course (3 cr.) –Research Rotation (6 cr.) 12 hours in theory or methodology courses (or credits from an MS degree) 21 hours of electives (or credits from an MS degree) 30 hours of dissertation research.
