3 Formal Courses Undergraduate courses I371 Chemical Informatics (1 cr. hour) I372 Molecular Modeling (2 cr. hours) Introductory graduate courses I571 Chemical Information Technology I572 Computational Chemistry and Molecular Modeling I573 Programming for Science Informatics I617 Informatics in Life Sciences and Chemistry (core PhD course for non-majors) Seminars I533 Chemical Informatics Seminar I647/I657 Advanced Chemical Informatics Seminar I-II

4 Cheminformatics Seminar I533 Seminar in Chemical Informatics Spring 2006 Topic: Molecular Informatics, the Data Grid, and an Introduction to eScience

5 I647 & I657 Advanced Chemical Informatics Seminars I-II Topics vary yearly and include: representation of chemical compounds representation of chemical reactions chemical data, databases and data sources searching chemical structures calculation of physical and chemical data (molecular mechanics and quantum mechanics) calculation of structure descriptors methods for chemical data analysis integration of cheminformatics and bioinformatics Fall 2006 topic: Bridging Bioinformatics and Chemical Informatics

6 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 Includes a 6-hour capstone/research project

7 Unique MS Program at IUPUI Laboratory Informatics at IUPUI Instrumentation and data interfacing Laboratory notebooks Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS)

8 Degree Programs: PhD in Informatics Began in August 2005 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.

9 Concentration Areas for the PhD in Informatics 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

10 Other Educational Activities Experiments with teleconferencing as a distance education tool I571 as CIC CourseShare offering Distributed Drug Discovery database for organic chemistry laboratory course at IUPUI Graduate Certificate in Chemical Informatics
