Genetics & Genomics

The Division of Biological Sciences has a strong, interactive group of scientists exploring fundamental mechanisms of genetics and genomics. Genetics is being used to elucidate a wide range of fundamental processes, including meitotic silencing, cytokinesis, learning and memory, neuronal development, transcription, cellular signaling, physiology, metabolism and chromosome evolution. Genomic-level studies are being used to study population dynamics and development of new traits. Research in this area benefits from several campus core research facilities, including a DNA Core, transgenic animal and plant transformation cores, and the University of Missouri Bioinformatics Consortium.
