Biomathematics Group


Development of research in the field of statistics-mathematics and informatics, applying new methods to improve the interpretation of the results. Provide advising and guarantee the statistical processing with powerful informatics systems and development of software that serve as support to agricultural activities. Keep a level of knowledge adequate for researchers in statistics and informatics.


Increase the scientific and investigative work to increase the levels of efficiency, quality and productivity aiming at providing more competitive goods and services. Increase the integral task of forming young post - graduate and graduate students in the field of Statistics-Mathematics, and that all the workers of the department have a capacitation program guaranteeing their professional development in a continuous form.

It is our purpose to keep the leadership in these fields and in the formation of young workers, besides the advising and tutoring of Master and PhD students. Increase the national and international projects to guarantee the continuous enhancement of the financial and economic management of the department. Attain the certification at national scale of the program of postgraduate education in Biometrics and have national and international students.
