Genetics

The genetics program at NC State was established in 1952 and is one of the longest running genetics graduate programs in the United States. The graduate training faculty perform research in all aspects of genetics, from molecules to populations. Our research encompasses behavioral genetics; biomedical genetics; computational genetics and bioinformatics; evolutionary, population and quantitative genetics; and molecular, cellular and developmental genetics. Our faculty utilize a wide range of traditional and nontraditional model systems in their research.

We consider graduate students to be professionals in training and provide a well-rounded program of academic, research and professional training. Students are intimately involved in program activities have a strong voice in shaping the program. We provide broad and comprehensive graduate training in genetics and also flexible academic programs tailored to meet the background and career goals of the individual student.
