ADMISSION TO Ph.D. PROGRAM
The Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB)
invites application form individuals with strong motivation and good academic
credentials to pursue research in frontier areas of modern biology leading to a
Ph.D. degree in the broad areas of functional genomics, bioinformatics,
comparative genomics and gene expression, disease genomics, allergy and
infectious diseases, environmental biotechnology, proteomics, biophysical
chemistry, nucleic acids and peptides design/ synthesis etc.
IGIB, a premier research Institute under CSIR, has emerged as one of the leading
knowledge providers in India in the area of geneomics and genome informatics
through generation of new knowledge in molecular medicine. IGIB is a confluence
of motivated researchers in multidisciplinary areas working synergistically in
modern integrative biology, IGIB has developed domain expertise in genomics and
established extensive partnerships and collaborations with medical institutes,
universities and industry.
They aspire to become a globally recognized Institute in Biological Research, a
goal they wish to share with students who dare to dream and dream to dare.

SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR PROSPECTIVE
IGIB organizes an innovative course-work in integrative biology for Ph.D.
students. The program is specially designed to encourage young minds to think
and generate integrative approaches towards contemporary challenges in biology.
/the broad areas that would be covered in this course are information flow in
biological systems, time and space in biological systems, biomolecules and
cells: a systems biology approach, host-pathogen interactions, microbes and
environment, bioinformatics and scientific communication skills-theory and
practice. They believe that this course structure allow students to develop
holistic understating of biological processes and help them develop into
trans-disciplinary scientists and integrative biologist.
