Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (SYBB) PhD Program

Case Western Reserve University's (CWRU) graduate program in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (SYBB) has two tracks:

  • Translational Bioinformatics: Equips students to apply recent advances in genomics and proteomics to solve clinical problems in a cost-effective manner; and
  • Molecular and Computational Biology: Provides students the cutting edge tools to tackle a variety of biological problems using computational approaches.

Students can choose one of the two tracks for the PhD program.

Program Competencies

The specific academic requirements of the SYBB Program are intended to provide students with a required core curriculum in Systems Biology and a set of electives designed both to assure minimum competencies in three Fundamental Core Competencies and equip them for their particular thesis research discipline. Each trainee will be guided in a course of study by a mentoring committee to ensure the completion of training in the program competencies as well as maintenance of a focus on molecular systems theory.

Fundamental Core Competencies

  • Genes and proteins
  • Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
  • Quantitative Analysis and Modeling
