The program focuses on developments in the biological and computational sciences relating to genome sequences, and the program is designed to take advantage of collaboration between the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Students are trained in emerging areas of genome science, with emphasis on genomics, structural biology, proteomics, computational biology and bioinformatics, and bioanalytical technologies.
Scientists from both campuses participate in teaching. Research projects pursued for either the MS or PhD are mentored by a faculty member from either campus. A year-long introductory course in Genome Science and Technology focuses on inquiry conducted on a genome-wide scale. Laboratory rotations during the first year offer students hands-on experience in a variety of focus areas.
