Mission Statement: We are an inter-departmental Ph.D.  program that trains future leaders in the field of bioinformatics and genomics. Our mission is to provide our graduate students with the tools to conduct original research in the development of novel approaches and new technologies to address fundamental biological questions.
Our Program: Students will be joint members of BIG and a 'home program' chosen from one of the four DMS programs, BBS, Immunology, Neuroscience, or Virology. BIG students will follow the curriculum and participate in activities of the home program, which will be supplemented with BIG programmatic and curricular offerings.
