A New IGERT training program at the University of Illinois. Our goal is to produce a new generation of biologists with novel training that provides a modern blend of genome-enabled biology and taxon-centered expertise, with specific emphasis on how the genome and the environment interact to give rise to diversity. With this skill set, graduates of our IGERT program will be at the leading edge of genome-enabled science allowing them to address fundamental challenges of both academic and societal importance.
Team-based, collaborative approach
Combining state-of-the-art training in genomics and bioinformatics, with a vertically integrated, taxon-oriented, perspective.
