Computer science team receives $1.4M from NIH for protein structure prediction

Over the past seven years, University of Missouri Computer Science Professors Dong Xu and Yi Shang have made a name for themselves in the emerging scientific field of protein structure prediction. This summer, the pair received $1.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to build upon their success in what has been labeled […]

MU to launch production of fourth feature film

Midwest students dreaming of futures in the film industry don’t need to set their sites on Los Angeles. The opportunity to take part in the production of a feature length film exists at the University of Missouri, where this semester the fourth film since 2005 is in the works. The upcoming movie’s cast and crew […]

MU protein structure prediction teams shine at international CASP9 Conference

Every protein’s unique three-dimensional structure dictates its function, yet only a fraction of the hundreds of millions of protein structures have been identified. It is one of the great-unsolved mysteries of life science, and researchers around the world are diligently working — and competing — to predict protein structure. Recent results from the National Institutes […]

MU College of Engineering computer science programs thriving

In the mid-1990s, the bachelor of science degree in computer science left the University of Missouri’s College of Arts & Science, and became a new department within the College of Engineering. The stage was set for the discipline to skyrocket into career prominence with broad applications of computer technologies in virtually all disciplines and industries, […]

Computer science academic adviser honored

Adrianna Lynn, the academic adviser for all 400 of the students in the computer science department – including IT – was one of 10 academic advisers from across campus nominated for the University of Missouri’s 2010 Professional Adviser Award. Sponsored by the MU Adviser’s Forum, with support from the provost’s office, nominees were honored at […]

Sequencing of soybean genome adds potential to research

Sequencing of soybean genome adds potential to research

Nearly 5,000 years after the first written reference to soy appeared on a list of Chinese plants, the legume’s genome has been sequenced. Researchers at the University of Missouri were part of the large multi-disciplinary team of scientists from academia and business that successfully untangled soybean’s genetic code, paving the way to improve soybeans’ performance […]

Mizzou Engineering and Shanghai University plan cooperative Computer Science undergraduate degree

Since the 1940s, the term “globalization” has been used to describe the increasing connectivity between people around the world. On November 30, the University of Missouri Computer Science Department increased its global connections when College of Engineering and MU administrators met with officials from Shanghai University to discuss implementation of a cooperative agreement between the […]

Dale Musser receives Excellence in Teaching with Technology Award

Dale Musser, assistant professor and director of the College of Engineering’s information technology program, is engaging his students with technology – and getting recognition for it. Musser received the 2009-10 University of Missouri Excellence in Teaching with Technology Award for undergraduate teaching. Since 2001 the MU Provost’s Office has been recognizing professors, teaching assistants, staff […]

MU receives high marks in international protein structure prediction competition

The University of Missouri has raised its stature in the international protein modeling community with its remarkable success in the Eighth Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP8), sponsored by the National Institute of Health. Results were released at the CASP8 conference held in Cagliari, on the island of Sardinia, Italy, in early […]

Book links informatics and fuzzy logic

Properties and behaviors of biological systems and objects often behave randomly, and analyzing them with bioinformatics programs can present certain limitations. A new book written by University of Missouri College of Engineering researchers offers insight into how fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic can provide tools to aid in solving some of these problems. Dong […]
