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.
Dr. Juan Gutierrez and Dr. Jessica Kissinger are two of 40 established investigators involved in the THoR’s HAMMER project, which was recently funded through a $6.4 million contract. The Defense Advances Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) are supporting the project which focuses on malaria and its effects on human and […]
iWall makes a visit to the Life Sciences Building
Dr. Jonathan Arnold, Graduate Coordinator of the Institute of Bioinformatics, and Professor of Genetics has introduced the UGA community to a highly advance in innovative technological teaching tool. Three panels of iWall have been installed in a classroom in the Life Sciences Building. Dr. Arnold is using this technology in his NSF funded REU program […]
