The Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics (BIG) PhD program trains future leaders in the field of bioinformatics and genomics. Our mission is to provide BIG graduate students with the tools to conduct original research and the ability to develop novel approaches and new technologies to address fundamental biological and biomedical questions.

Applicants to the BIG program typically have majored in a quantitative field (ex: computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, bioengineering) with a demonstrated interest in biological sciences OR have majored in a biological science but with considerable aptitude in computer programming and quantitative methods.

Successful applicants are fully funded throughout the entire graduate school years. The funding covers full tuition, health insurances, and fees, as well as a monthly stipend.
