As DNA tests become more common, researchers rapidly add equipment to keep up
Researchers receive NSF grant to explore system theoretic approaches for cancer drug discovery Two researchers from the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES)-AgriLife Center for Bioinformatics and Genomic Systems Engineering (CBGSE) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University have received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) that will
The CBGSE’s bioinformatics jobs site lists opening bioinformatics and computational biology jobs from around the world. In the last year we have posted over 2100 open positions. In addition to posting job openings this site has allowed us to collect data an critical jobs skills need in today’s bioinformatics job market.

Cancer’s Heterogeneity Modeling tumors’ diversity By Alexander Gelfand This Cancer might spring from a single cell gone awry, but tumors are not monolithic collections of clones. Far from it: They contain many different types of cancer cells, all with their own mutations, proliferation rates, metastatic capacities, and drug responses.diversity pushes the limits of current diagnostic and
ECEN 669 – Engineering Applications in Genomics Taught by Dr. Aniruddha Datta Description The aim of this course is to provide graduate students with a glimpse of the fascinating ways in which electrical engineering approaches are being used in the area of systems biology. Having taken this course, the students
