The Ph.D. program in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University School of Medicine provides opportunities for graduate study in all major areas of modern genetics, including identification and analysis of human disease genes, molecular evolution, gene therapy, statistical genetics, application of model organisms to problems in biology and medicine, and computational and experimental approaches to genome biology. The Department also includes the Stanford Human Genome Center, the Stanford Genome & Technology Center, the Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD), the Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics Knowledge Base (PharmGKB), the Tetrahymena Genome Database (TGD), the Candida Genome Database (CGD), the Stanford Microarray Database (SMD) and the Gene Ontology (GO) Consortium members; together, these provide resources and opportunities for large-scale and/or high-throughput approaches to biomedical research. The Stanford at The Tech (ST2) project provides graduate students and post-doctoral fellows an opportunity to learn how to present science to the public at The Tech Museum of San Jose.
