Welcome to the PhD Graduate Degree Program "Genetics and Genomics"

On the basis of the explosion of knowledge in the fields of genetics and genomics the goal of this program is to train students to explore the questions motivated by genetic research in general and particularly as they apply to human disease.

The curriculum will teach students within this program (as well as students from other programs who are also welcome) how to use the tools ofgenetics to answer a variety of important biological questions and how genetic knowledge and tools are applied in biomedical research and medical practice. Students completing the requirements of this program will have demonstrated mastery of knowledgein genetics & genomics and contributed substantial and original scientific knowledge to the field.

In addition they will be able to understand and discuss the ethical implications of this research.
