The Genetics and Genomics Home Area is a member of the broader UCLA Graduate Programs in Bioscience (GPB). There are ten different Home Areas in GPB, each consisting of an interdepartmental group of faculty and students with shared interests in research areas and approaches. The interdepartmental Home Areas provide in-depth, cutting-edge training for Ph.D. students and a wide variety of outstanding faculty research programs for Ph.D. training. Home Areas are integrated under GPB, which coordinates common activities and allows students to move between Home Areas under appropriate circumstances to best pursue their research interests. In these ways, GPB fosters interdisciplinary, collaborative research training aimed at breaking through major boundaries in basic and biomedical biosciences.

Application review and admission decisions are made by individual Home Areas. For the Genetics and Genomics Home Area, applications should be submitted through GPB.
