Functional Genomics

What are genes? What do gene products do? How do they do it? Which traits are developmentally determined and which are still actionable in adult organisms? How can the fundamental knowledge gained through genomics be used to improve health and the environment? You learn the answers to these and other questions in the challenging learning trajectory Functional Genomics, that culminates in a three-month individual hands-on internship in a research setting.

Coordinator: Jo Zhou
