The recent explosion of data generated by the fields of genetics and molecular biology has created a demand for sophisticated computational methods to extract meaningful information. Bioinformatics has emerged as an important new discipline in the biosciences, promoting a close working relationship between genetics and the computational sciences. To meet the needs of students interested in this area of research, we have developed a formal subtrack within the Genetics Ph.D. program that would lead to a Ph.D. in Genetics with a specialization in Computational Genetics.
