Genome and Epigenome Engineering

Currently recruiting interested students
Apply by Dec. 1

Genome engineering is growing exponentially in the wake of the Human Genome Project. This science is spawning new disciplines that promise to provide a deep understanding of biological systems in the context of our environment and life experience, offering an integrated understanding of biology and medicine that is not possible from studying a single organ system.

Join the quest to apply new genetic knowledge to human variation and disease, and develop new tools for understanding its computational complexity.

For more information email Dr. Andrew Feinberg today or apply now.
