Ph.D. - Genomics and Computational Biology
Genomics and computational biology lie at the center of a rapid convergence of biomedical research fields. These disciplines take as their subject the entire genome (as DNA) or the entire material determined by genes (as RNA or protein), and ask about the origins, function, and interactions of the system as a whole. Questions like these, and other developments in this field, stimulate experimental laboratory work in genomics, as well as computational activities in bioinformatics. Studies in this field therefore require skills not only in the biological and biomedical areas, but also in computer science. Together, genomics and computational biology represent some of the most important new developments in science, and especially draw attention to cross-disciplinary areas of science.
