The Genetics & Genomics Initiative is recruiting the first cohort of
> students for the Genetics & Genomics (GG) Scholars program (deadline:
> January 15th, 2020). The GG Scholars program prepares future scientists
> for cutting edge, interdisciplinary research across the life sciences
> andis built on the philosophy that the exploration of genes and genomes
> informs all fields of biology. The GG Scholars program is open to current
> and incoming PhD students. Throughout PhD training, GG Scholars are
> provided with an array of opportunities for development as scientists,
> including a world-classGGI Seminar Series, interactions withGGI Research
> Interest Groups, and a network of partnerships at the University and
