I was thinking of 3 concentrations: (1) Computing/informatics, (2) Molecular Medicine, and (3)
Structural Biology, where each requires 4 additional courses- each from a different area.
Ive proposed some areas that would might be important for those fields, and classes that might
demonstrate competence in that area.
