Graduate programs in Molecular Genetics and Genomics are administered by faculty in the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics (CMMG).  Degree programs include the Master of Science, Doctor of Philosophy, and a joint M.D.-Ph.D. program. Molecular Genetics and Genomics graduate students receive broad training in genetics, molecular and cellular biology, genomics, functional genomics, systems biology, bioinformatics, and computational and statistical methods. A major component of their training involves conducting dissertation or thesis research in one of the focus areas of Center faculty.  Students receive intensive laboratory training, working closely with faculty on projects at the forefront of biomedical genetics and genomics research.
