The Curriculum in Genetics and Molecular Biology (GMB) is an interdepartmental PhD program that trains students broadly in the fields of genetics and molecular biology. The Curriculum was initiated in 1963 and has been supported by an NRSA T32 training grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) since 1974.

We train outstanding students to be creative, sophisticated research scientists.  Our students have excellent publication records and are successful in obtaining grants and winning regional and national awards.  NIGMS highlighted our program for its “notable record of diversity recruitment and retention“.

The research interests of the faculty span a broad range of topics, from model organisms genetics to clinical and translational research; quantitative genetics and complex traits to virology and plant genetics.
