Welcome to GCB!
The mission of the Graduate Group in Genomics and Computational Biology (GCB) is to train the next generation of quantitative scientists with an integrated and deep understanding of the biological basis of health and disease.GCB accomplishes its training goals by:
- Administering a comprehensive training program that gives students a broad foundation in the biological and quantitative sciences along with practical experience in computational genomics, experimental genomics, or biomedical informatics;
- Providing trainees with a groundwork of knowledge through coursework, seminars, retreats, and interactions with visiting scientists;
- Introducing trainees to the highly dynamic and collaborative atmosphere of the Penn genomics and computational biology community.
