UCLA Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Genomics and Systems Biology

Interested in genomic data analysis? Train alongside UCLA students and postdocs in the latest next-generation sequencing analysis techniques!

The UCLA Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biosciences (QCB), a partnership between the UCLA College, Health Sciences and Engineering, is launching BIG Summer.

This 8 week experience exposes rising juniors and seniors to bioinformatics through intensive tutorials and research projects.

Participants receive instruction from QCB Collaboratory post-doctoral fellows under the direction of bio and computational scientists who are working together to improve our understanding of biological systems.

Take your understanding of science to a new level.
