Being a student member has the following benefits:

  • Acquiring interdisciplinary skills to tackle genome-scale problems both computationally and in the lab
  • Access to graduate scholarships
  • Conference travel awards for best posters at GBB retreats
  • Networking and discussion possibilities during the provided lunch following the Work-in-Progress seminar series
  • Pub Nights
  • The CGP designation on your PhD transcript

The requirements of the program for students are as follows: note that the the two GBB-mounted courses, JTB2010 and JTB2020, may be used to fulfill departmental Ph.D. requirements, as indicated in Appendix 1 of the GBB OCGS Appraisal Brief. Courses not listed below will be considered as acceptable alternates by the Program Committee on a case by case basis. Requests should be submitted along with the syllabus of the course in question to the Director.

  • Course: One of JTB2010 - Proteomics and Functional Genomics, JBB2026 - Protein Structure, Folding and Design, EEB1460H, formerly JZB1521H - Molecular Evolution, JBZ1472 - Computational Genomics and Bioinformatics
  • Course: One of JTB2020 - Applied Bioinformatics, CSC2417 - Algorithms for Genome Analysis, CSC2418 - Computational Structural Biology, CSC2515 - Machine Learning, BME1458 - Pattern Discovery Methods for Biomedical Engineering
  • Collaborative Traineeship: Students in the Program are required to spend roughly 2-4 months in a collaborator of a Graduate Program in Genome Biology and Bioinformatics faculty member's laboratory. The idea is to learn complementary techniques and methods from this member's lab and apply them towards the student's own PhD project. The 2-4 months may be in non-continuous chunks of time. The goal is to generate data/results for a joint publication, but this is not an absolute requirement
  • Participation in a yearly retreat
  • Participation in a seminar series. This series will be in the form of a Work-in-Progress seminar whereby students of the program will present their results to date. 75% attendance is expected. Collaborative Program faculty members will also be invited to speak in this series.
