Genomics and NYU

New York University and the American Museum of Natural History have received a $1.6 million grant from the National Science Foundation to explore plant evolution and to create a public database that provides information about the structure and inferred function of proteins found in two plant genomes. The three-year grant will allow the researchers at both institutions to investigate ground-breaking methods for exploring the evolution, structure, and function of proteomes - the entire array of proteins expressed by a genome.

As you may know, NYU is at the forefront of Genomics. But in order to continue to build in this rapidly evolving field, our scientists need facilities to match their extraordinary talents.

The revolutionary new Center for Genomics and Systems Biology planned for 12-16 Waverly Place is at the very heart of NYU's Washington Square campus. It will give our professors, researchers, graduate, and undergraduate students the tools they need to unleash the full potential of their research and to remain at the forefront of their field. While key sources of funding for ongoing research projects have already been secured, building these facilities will require the support and generosity of our entire University community.

Please take a moment to visit Endless Possibilities: The Campaign for The Center for Genomics and Systems Biology for more information. Your support is greatly appreciated!
