Administrative history

The Edison Family Center for Genome Sciences & Systems Biology is home to an interdisciplinary, multi-departmental, multi-generational team of investigators from multiple schools who focus on comparative genomics, statistical genomics, and systems biology. The Center strives to catalyze development and application of new analytic methods for studying the major disease franchises embraced by BioMed 21, an interdisciplinary research center at Washington University and the BJC Institute of Health.

The Center sponsors development of key infrastructure elements so as to allow rapid evolution of computational biology at Washington University and serves as a "proving ground" for developing new strategies for educating students and faculty who wish to work at the interface of the biological, physical, computational and engineering sciences.
