'Problems in Genomics' course

The "Problems in Genomics" course allows trainees to work in interdisciplinary groups to identify and solve a research problem. These findings are then published in a multi-authored paper. Enrollment in this course is required, and thus includes both new trainees and the more senior trainees. The senior trainees are encouraged to take leadership roles and mentor the new trainees. Therefore, trainees entering our program benefit from the guidance of the senior trainees, and later act as mentors themselves.
