Education

Graduate Training:

Graduate training opportunities are available in GeMS laboratories. Please inquire with individual investigators for openings and graduate program affiliations. GeMS investigators are members of the following Duke Graduate training programs: Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, University Program in Genetics and Genomics, Program in Cell and Molecular Biology, Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Program in Biomedical Engineering, and the Biology Graduate Program.

GeMS investigators are also participating faculty in Integrative Bioinformatics for Investigating and Engineering Microbiomes (IBIEM), a NSF-sponsored graduate training program organized jointly between Duke University and North Carolina A&T State University.

Workshops:

In addition, the GeMS Bioinformatics Group conducts workshops to train students and post-doctoral fellows on the implementation of basic and advanced bioinformatics tools. To request additional workshop topics and or request meeting times, contact Olaf Mueller, PhD or Josh Granek, PhD.  Please see Seminars and Events for current schedules of seminars, microbial genomics lunches, and other research-in-progress forums.
