Project Number: 6066-21310-004-21
Start Date: Sep 15, 2014
End Date: Sep 14, 2019
By working together, Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU) bioinformatic graduate students will develop bioinformatic scripts or bioinformatic pipelines addressing the research needs of Genomics and Bioinformatics Research Unit (GBRU). MVSU graduate students will validate said programs on data generated by ARS and when appropriate help with other aspects of analysis. GBRU will provide the students the scope of the project and general logic flow of the analysis. GBRU will assist in the evaluation of the work generated by the students. While working together with MVSU graduate students will be exposed to real world bioinformatics analysis that in some instances can be used as thesis topics and GBRU will be able to increase its speed of data analysis and design new computer scripts or pipelines to process that data.
