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 & Genomics Training Grant 5T32GM007754) for more than 35 years and running, the UPGG currently consists of nearly 95 faculty and adjunct faculty and more than 55 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
