This program prepares students for both academic and industrial careers. It is directed toward students interested in applying quantitative statistical and computational approaches to data acquisition and analysis in multiple life sciences fields including human health and medical biochemistry, plant phenomics, and host-microbial metagenomics.
In this program, students participate in a full year of laboratory rotations (3 total) on diverse topics, with one semester of laboratory teaching experience. In the first year of study, students consider "big questions" in the life sciences, and learn current technical and analytical approaches to answer them.Graduate Handbook Apply
