BUSM-GMS Graduate Program in Genetics and Genomics (GPGG)

The GSI faculty members who wish to promote training in genetics and genomics can mentor BU graduate students through the Graduate Program in Genetics and Genomics (GPGG).  The GSI will also support the training of current graduate students in the GPGG by providing conference travel assistance, computational hardware assistance and certain genomics software assistance.  Interested students should first apply and matriculate through the BUSM Umbrella Program PiBS (Program in Biomedical Sciences).

First Year PiBS Students interested in joining the GPGG should contact Dr.  Shoumita Dasgupta, Director of the GPGG, at  Students can also contact the GSI to learn about all the benefits and perks in pursuing training through the GPGG.

BU Bioinformatics Program – Internships for Masters Students
