Results of a transcriptome study by Libertas Academia

Genomic research in the biology department utilizes bioinformatic analysis of genome and transcriptome datasets to address questions on the genetics of disease, population genetics, microbiome function, and the control of gene expression. This work is supported by access to the University's core genomics facilities and free access to Drexel’s Proteus Computing Cluster.
