UCLA Training Grant in Genomic Analysis and Interpretation
The Genomic Analysis Training Program is funded by a NIH grant and supports UCLA pre-doctoral students whose goal is to conduct research in genomics. The program is designed to insure that students obtain an adequate biological, computational and statistical foundation to succeed in this important new, interdisciplinary field.
Each year, the Genomic Analysis Training Program provides its trainees with stipends and funding for academic fees. The grant also provides support for travel and research expenses.
Participating faculty represent a multidisciplinary approach to genomics including: biological chemistry, biomathematics, biostatistics, cardiology, chemical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, human genetics, molecular and medical pharmacology, pathology and laboratory medicine, and pediatrics.An ideal undergraduate preparation for genomic analysis and interpretation includes:
- multivariate calculus
- linear algebra
- Organic Chemistry
- Molecular or Cell Biology
- Computer Science:
- Programming in C++, Fortran 95 or Java
- Database structure and access
- Computational Complexity and Numerical Analysis
