• graduate courses in genome sciences• device and instrumentation development
• entrance scholarships available to
qualified students
• computational biology

Program Objectives

  • Generate a culture of innovation and discovery by exposing trainees at all levels to important and timely scientific problems being addressed using emerging technologies.
  • Enable researchers to effectively work at the nexus of biology, engineering, and physical sciences by providing a unified training program including joint seminars, cross-disciplinary rotations, and hands-on training in new technology and methodology.
  • Provide enriching professional development programs to assist the transition of trainees into both the academic and industrial workforces.
  • Foster close interactions, collaborations, and intellectual exchange with other laboratories nationally and internationally.

Our goal is to be among the top 10 graduate programs in genome sciences & technology in North America.
