Genetics, Cellular & Molecular Sciences Training Grant


All trainees who are supported by the GCMS-TG program must enroll within the courses that are required of their respective graduate Ph.D. program. Please visit the websites of the Biochemistry, GCDB, Micro, EEB, and Medical Sciences Programs for a complete listing of the core curriculum courses.

In addition to the core curriculum, trainees must enroll in at least two of the following graduate level courses: Biochemistry (B511), Molecular Genetics (L585), Cell Biology (L586), Developmental Biology (L587), and Molecular Biology of Prokaryotes (M511).

Lastly, trainees must enroll (on an annual basis) in the Genetics, Cellular, and Molecular Sciences Seminar Series and in the Frontiers in Genetics, Cellular, and Molecular Sciences course.

Following is a list of courses available to all GCMS-TG students.
