The Department of Forensic and Investigative Genetics offers a program of comprehensive training in analytical and computational methods necessary for studies in the various fields of applied genetics. Students participate in seminars and teaching, and receive extensive training in techniques of contemporary molecular genetics. Research track students perform original, publishable research and present their research findings at national and international scientific meetings.
Doctoral studies in Forensic and Investigative Genetics are broadly interdisciplinary. Students may undertake research in areas such as forensic genetics, clinical genetics, computational genetics and evolutionary biology, microbial forensics and many other interrelated disciplines.
