Experts on Genomics
Genomics is a field of science that focuses on studying and understanding the complete set of genes, or DNA, in living things. Scientists use special techniques to read and analyze the DNA of different organisms. They can identify and study individual genes, as well as understand how genes work together to create complex characteristics and functions.
WPI experts on genomics are working to better understand genomic instability and use genomic tools to identify therapeutic targets for cancer and fungal diseases. The work involves students and faculty in the Bioinformatics & Computational Biology program.The program comprises three academic departments: Biology, Computer Science, and Mathematics. The program uses quantitative techniques to better understand biology and generate meaningful solutions.
