NEW YORK, Nov. 18 (GenomeWeb News)- The National Science Foundation has awarded $145,924 to Williams College to establish a laboratory for the collection of DNA sequence and genotype data. The new laboratory will include a capillary-based DNA analyzer, equipment for template amplification and purification, and computer workstations equipped with software for data analysis. The laboratory will be established under the direction of Jason Wilder, an assistant professor of biology at Williams who is studying the forces that shape patterns of genetic variability in nature. “With this equipment, we'll be able to incorporate acquisition of DNA data directly into the curriculum at Williams, and include these data more efficiently in faculty research,” said Wilder.
