USF Genomics


USF Genomics represents a consortium of active research programs from different colleges and campuses of USF.

About USF Genomics 

Our projects integrate modern genomic approaches to understand and help develop solutions for some of the major challenges affecting global health and especially our Florida community. USF Genomics research projects are naturally interdisciplinary with studies that cross many boundaries of traditional scientific fields, integrating bioscience approaches in experimental and environmental research with computation biology. Opportunities exist for new graduate students to join well-funded research programs to study disease causes from underlying drug resistance and virulence genes in pathogenic organisms to changes of microbial communities within our bodies to the marine environment.
