About

The Systems, Synthetic and Physical Biology Graduate Program offered at Rice University is housed in the Institute of Biosciences and Bioengineering (IBB).

Overview

The Systems, Synthetic and Physical Biology program at Rice University is designed to provide students the knowledge and tools that they will need to solve hard research questions and to apply their discoveries to the development of biotechnologies that transform agriculture, electronics, energy, the environment, information storage, medicine, and manufacturing.

What you will learn

To provide students the tools that they will need to be world-class investigators, our core curriculum covers three synergistic topics:

  • Synthetic Biology — the “bottom-up” construction of biomolecules and cellular systems and their applications to increasing our understanding of biological processes and enabling new biotechnologies.
  • Systems Biology — the emergence of functional properties in complex biological systems that are not presented by the individual components (genes, transcripts, enzymes, and metabolites).
  • Physical Biology — the development of models that anticipate the properties of natural and synthetic cellular systems by integrating biology with chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science.

Programme Structure

Courses include: 
  • Physical Biology
  • Synthetic Biology
  • Responsible Conduct of Research 
  • Graduate Teaching in SSPB
  • Advanced Topics
