Life Sciences


  Genome science and technology concentration    
  Plant physiology and genetics concentration    

The program leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in life sciences is interdepartmental and intercollegiate and is designed to augment offerings of individual departments in two concentrations – genome science and technology, and plant physiology and genetics. Students interested in these areas should contact the director of the area of interest. Each concentration is administered separately and has unique admission requirements.

Intercollegiate Graduate Minor in Computational Science
The Graduate School of Genome Science and Technology participates in the intercollegiate graduate minor in computational science (IGMCS) program. Any student pursuing a PhD with a major in Life Sciences (genome science and technology concentration) can receive a Minor in Computational Science by completing the appropriate IGMCS requirements. For further information see the description of the IGMCS listed under the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The Graduate School in Genome Science and Technology also contributes courses to the IGMCS program curriculum.
