Our graduate program was established in the early 1970's. The current program underwent a name change in 2004 from "Graduate Program in Genetics" to "Graduate Program in Genetics, Genomics and Bioinformatics" to reflect the integration of Genomics and Bioinformatics and the broadening research emphasis of the program.
