Graduate and undergraduate students can choose to be affiliated with IBEST. These individuals will most often work in the laboratories of faculty affiliated with IBEST, and work on IBEST-related research projects. These students can choose to be in disciplinary degree programs of academic departments, or interdisciplinary programs such as the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) degree program. These individuals are expected to attend IBEST sponsored functions, including IBEST seminars and IBEST luncheons.

IBEST also provides faculty development options in collaboration with the College of Business and Economics. 


Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is a highly flexible interdisciplinary graduate program that prepares students to conduct research in academics, health sciences, agriculture, and other industries.


Other Academic Departments

The University of Idaho is big enough to matter but still small enough to care. Explore a variety of undergraduate and gradute degrees, all of which will help lead you to fulfill your educational and future career aspirations.


Leading and Sustaining Your Research Program

IBEST has partnered up with the College of Business and Economics to provide a business course for research faculty. It will be team-taught by leading faculty in the College of Business and Economics and provide content specifically developed to meet the needs to research faculty in the sciences and engineering. Faculty of all academic ranks that oversee a funded research program can enroll, but we especially encourage early career faculty to take advantage of this opportunity.
