PGFI has a strong commitment to strengthening genome sciences at PENN and is specifically interested in promoting genomics education among undergraduates.
Students interested in Masters level work in the broad area of Genomics/Computational Biology can take the Bioinformatics track in the Masters in Biotechnology program. In addition, PGFI has encouraged the development of four graduate level courses for students in the Genomics and Computational Biology (GCB) Graduate Group. Graduate students in GCB are housed in the Penn Center for Bioinformatics until they move into their thesis labs. PGFI also supports a graduate student award that provides a year's stipend to a deserving recipient, based upon written and oral presentations of the graduate student's research.
