Designated Emphasis in Computational and Genomic Biology

University/Institute: University of California, Berkeley (UCB)
Location: United States - Berkeley
Focus: Computational Biology
Recommended Undergraduate Degrees: Biology, Computer Science, Math/Statistics
Degree Offered: Ph.D/DSc (< 1 year)Ph.D/DSc (Minor/Emphasis)

Key characteristics of program:

Graduate training in computational biology is currently provided by the Designated Emphasis (DE) in Computational and Genomic Biology, a pseudo doctoral minor for existing graduate programs.
Designated Emphasis (DE) in Computational and Genomic Biology

Students take appropriate coursework, participate in retreats and seminar programs, and have the program integrated in their qualifying exam and thesis. The Designated Emphasis is indicated on students' diplomas.

Program Goals:

The Designated Emphasis (DE) in Computational and Genomic Biology is a specialization applicable to Ph.D. students in select programs with research interests in computational biology, which we refer to as our Associated Programs. DE students receive a solid foundation in the different facets of genomic research and the ensuing competitive edge for the most desirable jobs in academia and industry, which increasingly require interdisciplinary training.
