UW Madison to launch genomics research, innovation center

University of Wisconsin-Madison will open its new Center for Genomic Science Innovation Sept. 1.

Created as part of the reorganization of the Genome Center of Wisconsin, the new center will support the development of innovative technological and computational genomic approaches to solve modern issues in medicine and scientific discovery.

CGSI will focus on three main goals: innovation in genomic technology, innovating computational-genomic methods and creatively integrating genomic approaches for new understanding of complex biological systems.

Initially, the center will have 12 members, and it will also administer two training grants to support the education of the next generation of genomicists, the Genomic Sciences Training Program funded by the National Institutes of Health National Human Genome Research Institute and the Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine training program funded by the NIH National Library of Medicine.
