Genetics @ HSC: Genetics at UF

Degree Programs

Graduate Program in Genetics and Genomics This program’s physical heart is in the brand-new Genetics Institute Building- a multi-college, multi-faceted research center- and is designed to give students a solid, interdisciplinary foundation in the first year, with opportunities for specialization in the second year and beyond.   

Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences (IDP) This is a Graduate program emphasizing biomedical laboratory research, through a core curriculum and specialization in one of six advance concentrations: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Genetics, Immunology and Microbiology, Molecular Cell Biology, Neuroscience, and Physiology and Pharmacology.

Animal Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program (AMCB) This program offers Master's and PhD tracks and prepares students to conduct research and teaching in animal agriculture across a broad range of animal species.  Research focus include Molecular Biology & Physiology, Nutrition, and Breeding & Genetics.


Centers and Institutes

University of Florida Genetics Institute: Its goal is "to harness the vast array of talent at the University of Florida to make exciting new discoveries, transfer technology to the marketplace and improve quality of life."

Powell Gene Therapy Center: Its primary mission is "to merge molecular genetics research and health care delivery by developing new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of human diseases that involve gene transfer."

Center for Pharmacogenomics: Is part of the College of Pharmacy at the University of Florida. Its "collaboration in pharmacogenomics research with other disciplines such as medicine, dentistry and biological sciences at the University of Florida, ensures innovation in this cutting edge science."

Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research: Its mission is "to serve as a world-class research support center that provides scientifically knowledgeable, technically superb scientific services to University of Florida faculty, staff, graduate students, and other research partners throughout the state and nation."

Center for Epigenetics: Epigenetics focuses on the non-sequence aspects of gene expression control.  For instance epigeneticists might look at how histone modifications influence expression of a particular gene and how various stimuli affect histone modification.  Faculty in this group are focused on advancing knowledge in epigenetics through research and training the next generation of researchers who will contribute the body of knowledge in epigenetics.
