Biology Professor to Present at Faculty Forum

The Truman State University Faculty Forum will present Brent Buckner, professor of biology, in a program titled “Genomics and Bioinformatics at Truman State University: Constructionist Thinking From a Traditionally Reductionist Sub-Discipline” at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 in Magruder Hall 2001.
In this presentation, Buckner will describe the fundamental concepts of genomics and bioinformatics technologies. He will also highlight the maize genomic undergraduate research currently being conducted at Truman.

Biologists and computer scientists at Truman are actively participating in multi-institutional collaborations aimed at elucidating genetic diversity and global gene expression in maize. In this presentation, Buckner will describe some of these collaborations, as well as talk about the prodigious undergraduate research being conducted within the biology and computer science departments.
