University is pleased to announce newly established Fellowships in 
Plant Genomics, making possible the award of multiyear funding 
opportunities for outstanding candidates for graduate study.  Plant 
Genomics is a graduate training program administered by faculty 
members from 7 departments emphasizing formal academic education and 
research training on contemporary topics ranging from gene expression 
to quantitative biology using genomic tools.  Entering students are 
awarded program fellowships and rotate among laboratories sharing 
their area of interest during the first year to gain familiarity with 
faculty and ongoing research programs.  Funding for subsequent years 
comprises a combination of fellowships and research and teaching 
assistantships to provide a comprehensive educational experience. 
Degree programs are developed jointly between students and their 
faculty advisory committee, affording flexibility in academic 
preparation for profes
