What we offer

  • UF Genetics Institute

    The UFGI is an interdisciplinary program that seeks to promote excellence in the areas of genetics and genomics at the University of Florida by–

    –Building community, facilitating collaboration and creating opportunities for intellectual exchanges among investigators working in diverse taxonomic systems but with a common set of approaches in genetics and genomics.

    –Supporting recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty in the areas of genetic and genomics.

    –Supporting graduate education in the areas of genetics and genomics.

    –Enhancing the ability of researchers at the University of Florida to compete for multidisciplinary research grants in the area of genetics and genomics.

  • Genetics & Genomics Graduate Program

    We believe good geneticists are integrative geneticists– incorporating many different genetic sub-fields into their work. Interests in the faculty span from basic research to applied work.

    Graduate students are currently pursuing:
