The Bioinformatics Graduate Program is flexible and attracts applicants from a wide range of academic backgrounds. Consequently, the training programs listed here enhance a variety of students disciplines. Furthermore, the Graduate Program is proud of its diverse student body and encourages students from traditionally underrepresented minorities, disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with disabilities to apply for training grant appointments. Appointing such students to these grants is an asset both to the Program and the student.
