NCGAS to provide cutting-edge computational facilities for $6.2M research study (touch for more >>)

IU biologists will receive over $6.2 million from the US Army Research Office to study how bacteria evolve in response to both their internal, population-influenced environments and their external natural environment.

The Defense Department’s Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative grant, which will provide the funding over the next five years, specifically supports teams of scientists whose research efforts intersect more than one traditional discipline and which are poised to accelerate research progress to practical applications of importance to the department.

Four IU labs will be supported by an exceptional array of resources already located at IU. The Indiana Molecular Biology Institute will provide the equipment required for conventional sequencing; the Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics will construct all the libraries of high-throughput sequencing; and the National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) will provide cutting-edge computational facilities.
