To increase enrollment, completions, and employment, Las Positas College will develop a new certificate program in Computational Biology. Computational Biology recognizes the importance of computing to modern biological research. Vast amounts of data are being generated with new technologies in sequencing, genomics, proteomics, and other fields. There is a strong industry need for employees with competency in bioinformatics and computations biology. A certificate program would bring together biology, computing, programming, and math/statistics to create a foundation for students to enter this high-demand fields. A Biology faculty will be given release time to develop the certificate; and, associated supplies and materials will be procured. The Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research (COE) projects 397 annual job openings for Biological Technicians/Scientists between 2014-2017. The COECCC reports an average annual total of 294 completers for Biological Technicians/Scientists from 2011-2015. The data yields an under supply of 103 for the occupations of Biological Technicians/Scientists.

The computations biology program will meet all WIOA metrics by year three.
