Iowa State University Awards $175K for Animal Genomics Research

NEW YORK, Dec. 6 (GenomeWeb News) - Iowa State University awarded $175,000 to 19 projects to support genomics infrastructure research needs, and for research personnel working with faculty, the school said yesterday.


Funded by ISU's Center for Integrated Animal Genomics, the projects are working to discover new information about a variety of genetic problems in chickens, pigs, cattle, cats, dogs, mice, and worms, as well as animal diseases that affect humans.


Since its inception in 2002, the center has provided more than $450,000 to support animal genomics research on campus.
