In collaboration with CVM, we are putting a short course on a minION sequencing (handheld sequencer). Five of the top researchers working in this area will be coming to College Station in June and we are now in the process of recruiting students. http://www.txgen.tamu.edu/porecamp_usa/ PoreCamp is part of the PoreCamp series, This series was founded Read more about PoreCamp USA[…]

As DNA tests become more common, researchers rapidly add equipment to keep up
AgriLife Genomics and Bioinformatics Service will have open Bioinformatics office hours twice a month in the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building on main campus, providing in-person assistance for bioinformatics questions for faculty/students/researchers. Depending on the response we may expand both the number of hours and frequency. During these bioinformatics office hours, we will answer questions related to Read more about NEW BIOINFORMATICS HELP COMING TO AGGIELAND[…]

2016 was a great year for us. New sequencers and great research, HiSeq 4000, PacBio Sequel, and MinION R9. New website. 365 projects added to our LIMS this year (One a day). Over $1.6M in new grant funding. TxGen is overseeing four genomic seed grant programs.
Our Bioinformatics jobs page has has been totally revamped by Dr. Marcel Brun. We have added the ability to search roles, skills, and by company. This will greatly aid those searching our page. 3265 jobs added to date, over 66 pages of information.
Coming Soon! We will provide with a new form for samples submissions, integrated with our samples management system, to improve greatly the submission part of all projects. The process include: An email with a link and a password, for each project and submission. A login page for the user to log in with the provided Read more about New Web Based Sample Submission Coming Soon[…]
Texas A&M AgriLife Genomics and Bioinformatics Services Facility launches new website with new single page format optimized for smart phones, tablets, and laptop computes. Currently offering Illumina, PacBio and Oxford Nanopore sequencing.
