The key missions of this interdisciplinary Institute include (a) facilitating interactions and research collaborations between experimental biologists, -omics technologists and computational/mathematical scientists to tackle complex biological problems, and (b) training the next generation of biologists who are capable of using computers and mathematical techniques in dealing with biological problems. The Institute is also responsible for the computing support for campus wide bioinformatics research at UGA. IOB members are actively conducting bioinformatics research in a wide range of areas, ranging from structural genomics and bioinformatics, plant genomics and bioinformatics, microbial genomics and bioinformatics, biomedical and cancer bioinformatics, pharmaco informatics, glyco genomics and bioinformatics, to computational and statistical sciences for bioinformatics.
IOB student Lexiang Ji has published in PNAS . The article is titled “On the origin and evolutionary consequences of gene body DNA methylation.” Dr. Bob Schmitz is the corresponding author. You can find the paper here.
IOB Faculty Member Awarded Fellowship
Dr. Art Edison has been given a Fulbright Specialist Fellowship. Dr. Edison will teach NMR and metabolomics to students in Ecuador, spending significant time in country to teach, develop new collaborations, and recruit graduate students to the University of Georgia.
