Are you interested in data-driven next-generation genomics, bioinformatics, or data science? Are you a biologist, computer scientist, mathematician, bioinformatician, data scientist, or biochemist interested in the discovery only possible through interdisciplinary collaboration? Are you interested in joining and leading interdisciplinary teams as we work together to study genome biology, molecular evolution, and the computational approaches and algorithms necessary for big data genomic analysis. This is the Omics Experience - a research site dedicated to Next-Generation Bioinformatics for Genomics-enabled Research in the Life Sciences funded by the Division of Biological Infrastructure at the National Science Foundation.

Our vision for this NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site is to cultivate the talents of an intellectually and culturally diverse group of 10 undergraduate students each year drawn from fields related to the life science, bioinformatics, and computer science by engaging them in ongoing biological research projects that employ next-generation DNA sequencing technologies and high performance computing. These projects will span areas of bioinformatics, data science, cyberinfrastructure, data mining, e-Science, genome biology, organismal biology and molecular evolution. Students will be expected to lead and operate in small interdisciplinary teams.
