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 […]

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 […]

New protein prediction software put to the test

“Bioinformatics is one of the most exciting fields in science because it is interdisciplinary—the marriage of computer science and biology, said Jianlin Cheng, an assistant professor in computer science at the University of Missouri, and a faculty member of the MU Informatics Institute. “Students in this field have good job opportunities and great research opportunities […]
