About Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program

Work is offered for the doctor of philosophy [Ph.D.] and master of science [M.S.] degrees with a major in genetics and genomics. There are fourteen participating departments. The diversity of faculty in the interdepartmental genetics program ensures a broad, well-balanced education from the best instructors, while offering flexibility in choice of specialization. Genetics and Genomics faculty have strengths in many areas, from fundamental studies at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and population levels, to research with immediate practical application. Ongoing research projects span all the major areas of theoretical and experimental genetics, including molecular studies of gene regulation, gene mapping, transposable element studies, developmental genetics, quantitative and mathematical genetics, evolutionary genetics, and population genetics. Read more
