Advanced Writing Course
All students are required to take an advanced writing course within their major. For the bioinformatics major, the advanced writing requirement can be fulfilled by completing a sequence of approved biology courses at UNO that incorporate discipline specific writing as part of their requirements. To satisfy the requirement for the advanced writing course students must complete BIOL 1450 and BIOL 1750, both BIOL 2140 and BIOL 3020 and two additional 3000/4000 level courses that are approved as meeting the writing requirement by the Department of Biology. For the bioinformatics major, the two additional approved 3000/4000 level courses will be BIOL 4130/4140 and BIOL 4050. Only courses taken at UNO and after January 1, 2010 can be applied to this requirement. Students not meeting the writing requirement through this sequence of courses will fulfill the writing requirement by completing BIOL 3150 - Writing and Communication in Biology.
