PhD Course in Functional and Structural Genomics at SISSA

The main mission of the PhD Course in Structural and Functional Genomics is to train enthusiastic young scientists addressing their interests in a broad spectrum of biological research disciplines.

Projects within the PhD Course Program span from genomics, transcriptomics and developmental genetics to structural biology, molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration and developmental neurobiology. Crossing over research such as system biology may have a prominent role within the PhD Course Program. Students are continuously in touch with cutting-edge research by attending classes, seminars and workshops throughout the year. The average teacher-student ratio is about 1 to 5.
