NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Texas A&M University late on Wednesday announced a research initiative to leverage new discoveries in genomics.

A team comprising researchers from Johns Hopkins University, Texas A&M University, and a Panamanian research institute has demonstrated how multiplex allele-specific PCR, or MAS-PCR, could prove an accurate and inexpensive tool for rapid detection of multidrug-resistant tuber

Scientists at the University of Missouri and Texas A&M University will use high-density genotyping arrays made by Affymetrix or Illumina to discover markers related to feed efficiency and resistance to pathogens.

The USDA has awarded two grants to teams led by Texas A&M and the University of Missouri to support genomics studies aimed at improving cattle health and breeding.

Texas A&M's Raffaele Montuoro has developed a parallel version of Illumina's Genome Analysis Pipeline, called pGAP, which speeds up the analysis time by a factor of four.

AgriLife Research will study and use genes related to weather and pathogen resistance traits.

CEO Barry Bochner said that Biolog will use the funds to continue adapting its Phenotype Microarray platform to study Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other fastidious pathogens, expand its Microbial Identification System to cover more fastidious species, and work with researchers at Texas A&M University to study gene function in Mycobacterium.

The school's Institute for Genomics Medicine will study chemical toxicity in mouse models.
