Oregon's Center for Coastal Margins to Use Genomics and Proteomics Tools in Research

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An observation and prediction center in Oregon focused on waters where rivers meet the Pacific Ocean will use proteomics and genomics technology to study coastal margins and ocean processes, the Oregon Health & Science University recently.
The university will use a $19-million National Science Foundation grant to form the center. The grant is renewable after five years.
Oregon Health & Science University’s OGI School of Science and Engineering, University of Washington, Oregon State University, and other partners will donate $5.6 million towards the center.
The NSF Science and Technology Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction is the only science and technology center focused on coastal margins and the first ever hosted in Oregon. A coastal margin is the area where river and ocean meet.
