Computational Biology Students Learn of Local Research Opportunities

Students in the Computational Biology program recently received a tour of Analome.com from Dr. David Kovalic, president of the company.

Webster University Computational Biology majors Masha Kinley, Luisa Mercado, and Shiloh Bradley visited the T-Rex biotech incubator on Washington Ave. in downtown St. Louis (downtowntrex.org), as well as the Genome Technology Access Center (GTAC) at Washington University (gtac.wustl.edu), to hear about research opportunities for undergraduates.

Analome.com and GTAC both specialize in next-generation sequencing as well as other big-data projects, using computational biology and bioinformatics skills to design experiments and analyze data.  

Undergraduate students at Webster University pursuing independent research or working on their senior thesis projects in the Department of Biological Sciences have opportunities work with innovative mentors at these and other local institutions.
