Genomics at NCSU

NC State was one of the first universities to offer formal graduate education in genomic sciences, and we have offered degrees in both Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics since 1999. Our program has awarded over 75 PhD and 25 Masters degrees in the past decade, and those graduates occupy outstanding positions in government, academic, and commercial settings around the world.

Our students are fortunate to select from more than 100 faculty members associated with our university-wide genomics programs. These faculty represent over 20 academic departments from the Colleges of Sciences, Agriculture and Life Sciences, Veterinary Medicine, Engineering, and Natural Resources. Students have access to world-class laboratory and computational resources, and excellent financial support is available for students accepted into our programs.
