Genome Biology and Bioinformatics (Collaborative Specialization)

Program Information
Faculty: School of Graduate Studies
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: BioinformaticsGenetics, Other
Description The recent elucidation of the genomes of many organisms has lead to the appreciation that our knowledge of the function of the proteome and other "omes" of any given organism is far from complete. A wide range of computational, theoretical, biochemical, structural, cell biological and genetic approaches need to cooperate to establish the connections between sequence, structure and function. The Collaborative Graduate Program in Genome Biology and Bioinformatics* addresses this need for cooperation with a coherent course of study that educates and trains doctoral graduate students across these diverse disciplines. We intend the program to serve as a model for a content-driven, trans-departmental unit that responds to the University's need to adapt to cutting-edge scientific developments.

Thesis Based? Yes
Additional Admission Requirements:
    Applicants who wish to enrol in the collaborative specialization must apply to and be admitted to both the collaborative specialization and a graduate degree program in one of the collaborating departments. Since this is a doctoral-level course of study, students must be registered in the doctoral program of one of the host departments and must be undertaking research with a significant genome biology and/or bioinformatics component under the supervision of a member of the collaborative specialization.

    * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
