If it's like most of the Bio PhD programs in the US, the usual process is: Turn in application -> application package is reviewed by admission committee -> applicant invited to an interview weekend (sometime between Jan - Mar of the year one would matriculate) -> Adcomm assesses applicant's interview talks w/ various PI's -> Adcomm accepts applicant and extends formal invitation to the program -> Applicant chooses to accept the invitation -> Applicant matriculates into the program and starts grad school.


Overall - every accepted student usually (~95% of the time) was interviewed by the program before attending. Special cases are grad students that may have chosen to move the institute with their PI, or research Techs that have been with the PI for quite a few years and have a more informal interview process.
