NYU to Open New Genomics Center

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – New York University will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony tomorrow for its new Center for Genomics and Systems Biology in Manhattan tomorrow.

The 62,000 square-foot center will focus on genomics and systems biology, including research into how genomes encode regulatory networks in various life forms, how they respond to environmental changes, and how they evolve. These studies will involve comparative functional genomics, bioinformatic analysis, and interdisciplinary research.

The center also engages in collaborations with NYU's Courant Institute of Math and Computer Sciences, The American Museum of Natural History, The New York Botanical Garden, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories.

National Human Genome Research Institute Director Eric Green will deliver a speech to inaugurate the new center.
