Genetics and Genomics
By studying the genetic basis of biological processes, researchers work to develop new understandings of the role that genes, and genetic regulation, play in development, behavior, and disease. The work harnesses sequencing and bioinformatics technologies that have recently made feasible the study of enormous data sets.
