About the Program

The Duke University Program in Genetics and Genomics (UPGG) is an umbrella graduate training program that spans several basic science and clinical departments and bridges the Medical Center and the College of Arts and Sciences. Founded in 1967 and supported by a continuous NIH training grant (Genetics Training Grant 5T32GM007754) for more than 30 years and running, the UPGG currently consists of nearly 100 faculty and adjunct faculty and more than 75 students.

For several decades, UPGG has served as an important forum for genetic training and education in model systems (bacteria, yeast, fungi, drosophila, zebrafish, mouse), population genetics, and human genetics
