Researcher continues work to decode genome sequences

In the future, hospitals and clinics may be able to better manage diseases by pinpointing exactly how an individual’s body will respond to treatment. But first, they need a fast, efficient and secure way to analyze DNA, or human genome sequences. Enter Praveen Rao, an associate professor with joint appointments in Health Management & Informatics…


A faster ‘code breaker’ to analyze human DNA

Mizzou researchers are developing a free, online resource that could help scientists accelerate their discoveries for various human diseases.

Studying chromosomes: Mizzou Engineering develops 3D modeling tool

Science has already allowed us to map the human genome – one of the biggest scientific achievements of our lifetimes. But to really take that achievement to the next level and use it to improve precision health and medicine, we need accurate 3D models to study chromosomes in great detail. A Mizzou Engineering researcher and his team have designed a tool to do just that.
