Roux Family Center for Genomics and Computational Biology
Enabling scientists to harness the full power of genomic technologies and computational strategies to analyze the human genome.
The Roux Family Center for Genomics and Computational Biology is a virtual center—spanning JAX’s Bar Harbor and Farmington campuses—that serves as a catalyst for collaborative genomics and computational research. This center includes three endowed faculty chair positions and a permanent fund for recruiting expert staff and driving research and discovery at the Laboratory. The center enables scientists to harness the full power of innovative genomic technologies and computational strategies, using them to analyze the human genome and discover new and better ways of preventing and treating disease.
The WORM Human OrthoLogy Explorer is a meta-tool that uses machine learning to predict novel least diverged orthologs (LDOs) by integrating ortholog predictions from 17...
