The Genetics and Genomic Sciences program draws from internationally recognized research that creates a multidisciplinary environment if you are interested in a disease-oriented and patient focused research program. As genetics and genomics permeates through a variety of scientific disciplines, we offer many unique opportunities to integrate basic genomics research with clinical and translational genetics across many applications.
Ours is a supportive learning environment. We encourage team research and frequent communications with your fellow students and your faculty. You meet with your advisory committee approximately once every six months in order to provide progress reports and seek advice and feedback from your committee on your research. Progress reports that acknowledge these meetings must be filed with the Graduate School office.
Our MTA offers a number of graduate courses providing education in genetics, genomics, genome analysis and computational methods.
