Ph.D. - Functional Genomics, M.S. - Functional Genomics; Master's of Functional Genomics
Genomic Science at NC State has two components;
Functional Genomics - the generation of large bodies of data relating to organism function and
Bioinformatics - the analysis of these vast and complex data sets.
Students can register for graduate study in either of these fields and also receive a solid grounding in the other, through a core of courses common to both programs.
NC State University's two state-of-the-art Genomic Science facilities, the Genome Research Laboratory and the Bioinformatics Research Center, at Centennial Campus are used for groundbreaking research and allow collaborations with industry and other programs on campus. Genomic science students have access to both centers in order to gain practical experience as part of their degree programs.
