The Genome, Cell, and Developmental Biology (GCDB) graduate program offers interdisciplinary training in genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, biochemistry, developmental biology, cell biology, and evolution. We are engaged in a wide range of cutting-edge research, offering graduate students many choices from which to select areas of specialization for their thesis research.

In our program, you will learn how to plan, execute, and critically analyze experiments. Other professional development includes learning how to present seminars and write high-quality research papers and grants. The GCDB program provides students with the training and research experience necessary to pursue a diversity of careers, including academic biomedical research, biotech industry, and university-level teaching.

Coursework, research + professional development

The GCDB program consists of formal coursework, laboratory research, and professional development. During the first year, GCDB students take a common core program. The fall core consists of Integrated Biochemistry, Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Critical Analysis of Scientific Literature. In addition, students participate in three research rotations during the first semester to sample the interests, approaches and styles of each laboratory. This allows students to make well-informed decisions about what research areas to pursue and which laboratory to join. The spring core courses include Cell Biology and Developmental Biology. Students also select one journal-style course in a specific subfield (e.g., Chromosome and Genome Biology).

GCDB students are required to teach one semester. This experience provides graduate students professional development in teaching, and also an opportunity to deeply understand a subject by teaching it to others.

In the fall of the second year, students take a professional development course in grant writing. In this course, students learn to write a persuasive proposal on their own research and how to apply for external funding. In the spring, students enroll in a course in ethics and professional development.

During years 2-3, students take minor courses in a subfield of their choosing. Most GCDB students minor in genetics. Upon consultation with their advisor and the GCDB program director, however, students can choose to minor in another subfield that matches their research and career goals.

In addition to a student's main research advisor (thesis mentor), each student selects an advisory committee of three faculty members whose expertise is appropriate for the student's research project. This advisory committee is another invaluable source of advice for the student as his/her research and career advances.
