Researcher to Develop Algorithm to Identify Genetic Mutations

Researcher to Develop Algorithm to Identify Genetic Mutations

By Ed Moorhouse A Rutgers University–Camden professor has been awarded a grant that will fund the development of an algorithm that could better identify large-scale genomic changes, such as those related to evolution or disease-causing mutations. The three-year, $604,475 award from the National Science Foundation allows Andrey Grigoriev, a professor of biology at Rutgers–Camden, along […]

Biology Major Graduating in May Discovers Plant Gene

The most exciting aspect of research is making unexpected discoveries. A student could be mining through endless amounts of data to help find a common theme or pattern when, almost out of nowhere, something entirely new surfaces and unlocks mysteries and answers questions. That’s exactly what happened at Rutgers University–Camden to Lyla Jno Baptiste. The […]

Doctoral Research on Fruit Flies Seeks Answers to Cell Signaling Problems

In a research lab on the Rutgers–Camden campus, Matt Niepielko reaches for a vial containing about 50 fruit flies and begins to observe them. The tiny species may seem insignificant — or annoying, if they’re floating around your kitchen — but in this room, each fly plays an important role in our understanding of genetics. […]
