Biology majors are getting the job done on campus in the age of artificial intelligence, according to the New York Times.
Numerical computation, the ability to calculate multiple data points simultaneously, is one of the hottest fields of science, according the Times.
This week, the Times reported that the University of Chicago has started offering the first classes on the topic.
Students will study the process of creating new nuclei, the process that gives us DNA.
They will learn how to analyze a new type of nucleotide, how to generate a new DNA strand and how to sequence a single DNA molecule.
According to the Times, the classes will be offered on the second and third floors of the Chemistry Department.
They will be taught by John Cacioppo, who was named the new dean of the Chicago School of Medicine in May.
Cacioppo was named dean of Chicago School in April after leading the school for nearly 30 years.
He will replace Thomas Sorensen, who left to become dean of Stony Brook University.
