The Master of Science in Genome Bioinformatics (MSGB) program prepares students for careers analyzing the human genome both in academia and in pharmaceutical and genomic testing industries. Graduates of the program will meet the growing need for computational analysts with expertise in manipulating, annotating, and interpreting human genome data. In addition to coursework and hands-on training, students will participate in a structured internship experience in industry or other non-academic setting to provide real world exposure to genome bioinformatics and hone analytic and communication skills in preparation for entering the job market.
Our MSGB graduates will be experts in applying computation tools for studying and interpreting the human genome in a future where genomics is central to precision medicine and biomedical research.
Applications for the MS in Genome Bioinformatics are due by January 15 for fall admission. For spring admission, U.S. residents must apply by October 15 and international students by August 1.
