Genomics and Computational Biology Graduate Group (GCB)

Genomics and computational biology lie at the center of a rapid convergence of biomedical research fields. These disciplines take as their subject the entire genome (as DNA) or the entire material determined by genes (as RNA or protein), and ask about the origins, function and interactions of the system as a whole. Questions like these, and other developments in this field, stimulate experimental laboratory work in genomics, as well as computational activities in bioinformatics.The GCB graduate program brings together the experimental approaches of high-throughput genetics and molecular biology, with the contemporary ability to manage and interpret the very large collections of data that result.
