North Carolina State University - Department Of Genetics

The Program in Genetics consists of a highly interactive group of scientists with foci in quantitative, developmental and computational genetics. The program also administers outstanding undergraduate and graduate training programs in genetics, partly supported by an NIH training grant on ’The Genetic Architecture of Quantitative Traits’.
