August 14, 2013

The Texas A&M University (TAMU) System Board of Regents has approved the establishment of the Center for Bioinformatics and Genomics Systems Engineering in College Station, a joint center of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and Texas A&M AgriLife Research.

The center's overall mission is to use the strengths of contemporary engineering systems theory and life sciences to perform fundamental and translational research that impacts human and animal health and agriculture and life sciences. Research to be conducted in the center includes bioinformatics, computational biology, genomics and systems engineering as they relate to human and animal health, medicine and agriculture.

TAMU System Chancellor John Sharp said, "This is a tremendous example of our system's commitment to new discovery and serving the people of Texas as well as the nation."
