RNAMiner makes transcriptomic, genomic data analysis easier

Jianlin Cheng, associate professor of computer science, and doctoral students Jilong Li and Jie Hou recently developed RNAMiner, a website making it easier for those in the biological sciences to analyze genomic and transcriptomic data.

Success measured by academics

For some, the ability to turn personal success into lessons that teach others how to achieve the same success is the most rewarding. Such is the case for two alumni as both start their careers in academia.

CS student attains Central Michigan professorship

A computer science student will soon make his final departure from MU, making the momentous jump from pupil to teacher. Jesse Eickholt, doctoral candidate in computer science, accepted an assistant professorship with Central Michigan University (CMU) where he will start in July.

MULTICOM, MUFOLD rank high in protein modeling competition

There are the astronomical odds to predicting protein structures. MULTICOM and MUFOLD — two MU College of Engineering protein structure prediction teams — competed in the most recent Critical Assessment of protein Structure Prediction competition.

Cheng takes aim at genetic mysteries

Jianlin Cheng, an MU associate professor of computer science, has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to design and develop computational methods to unlock the mysteries of genome folding and function through 3D visualization of genomic structures. Cheng refers to the genome as the book of life. Nearly 60 years have passed since James […]

Cheng receives NSF CAREER Award

Jianlin “Jack” Cheng, an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Missouri, has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Considered NSF’s most prestigious award, it provides five years of project funding intended to support career-development activities of teacher-scholars, giving them a solid base for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and […]

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 […]

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 […]
