Computational Genomics Education and Training
There are several ways to collaborate and learn at Johns Hopkins:
- Training Opportunities for graduate students
- JHU/JHMI Courses
Students interested in Ph.D. studies at Hopkins in genomics, computational biology, and related topics have a number of choices. While we do not have a Ph.D. program specifically in Bioinformatics or Genomics, our faculty supervise Ph.D. research in both these areas through a number of different graduate programs. Links to these programs can be found below, and potential students are encouraged to apply to the Ph.D. program that best matches their interests.
Students with a background in mathematics or statistics should consider applying to the Ph.D. program in Biostatistics at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Biostatistics is ranked number 3 in the country and is an outstanding program overall, with multiple faculty members working in genomics.
Students with a background in computer science, mathematics, physics, or other statistics may consider applying to the Ph.D. program in Computer Science in the Whiting School of Engineering.
Students with training in engineering, biology, or computer science may consider the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering (Joint program with Homewood and School of Medicine), ranked #1 in the country for many years.
- If your background is primarily in biology, consider the Ph.D. program in Human Genetics at the Institute of Genetic Medicine, School of Medicine, one of the premier human genetics programs in the world.
Summer Internships throught the Johns Hopkins Center for Computational Biology
The internship program will provide you with hands-on
research experience as part of ongoing research projects
with bioinformatics and genomics faculty in the
Institute of Genetic Medicine. Current areas of research include
analysis of high-throughput sequencing data to determine markers
of disease, characterize genes and their variations in species
such as human and mouse, reconstruct gene networks, and assemble
and analyze genomes. The program involves full-time research
for 8-12 weeks between May and August.
The program is open to undergraduates (including following their senior year), as well as exceptional high-school students. You do not need to be a Johns Hopkins University student to apply, and applications from students at other universities are encouraged. For more information please go to the internship page on the Johns Hopkins Center for Computational Biology website.
