Doctoral Curriculum and Training

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Concentration of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program (IDP) in the College of Medicine offers a focused training curriculum in epigenetics. In addition to participating as research mentors in epigenetics, CEG faculty are closely involved in teaching courses tailored to training in epigenetics. These courses may be taken in fulfillment of requirements for the IDP. This sequence of courses consist of:

BCH 6415 Advanced Molecular and Cell Biology (Dr. Yang, coordinator; Spring, 3 credit hrs.)
BCH 7410 Advanced Gene Regulation (Dr. Huang, coordinator; Fall, 1 credit hr.)
BCH 7412 Epigenetics of Human Disease and Development (Dr. Lu, coordinator; Fall, 1 credit hr.)
BCH 7414 Advanced Chromatin Structure (Dr. Yang, coordinator; Spring; 1 credit hr.)
GMS 6195 Epigenetics Journal Club (Drs. Kladde and Yang, coordinators; Fall and Spring; 1 credit hr.)
