Cheminformatics is at the intersection of chemistry and information technology. You’ll develop an in-demand skill set combining a technical understanding of chemistry with computer expertise to support investigation of chemicals and materials that are not practical for laboratory analysis, model individual molecules or the behaviors of chemical compounds within the natural world, or develop information-storage solutions at the molecular level.
