Project Profile

IGERT Program in Comparative Genomics

University of Arizona


Research in the life sciences is undergoing a radical transformation. With the complete genome sequences of many organisms now available, scientists can begin to tackle fundamental questions that were previously intractable. Where do new genes come from? Which genes make us uniquely human? What functions are associated with different regions… more »
