Training Researchers in Genomics 

The Michigan Center for Genomic Technologies is a Michigan Life Sciences Corridor core facility.

The Michigan Center for Genomic Technologies at Wayne State University hosted the first in a planned series of symposia dealing with the nuts and bolts of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. The first symposium focused on DNA microarrays and hosted people from across the campus and the state. It was jointly sponsored by Affymetrix Inc. and the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics.

Wayne State’s genomics center is a member of the Michigan Life Sciences Corridor’s Core Technology Alliance along with the Van Andel Institute, Michigan State University and the University of Michigan. According to Dr. Mark Hughes, director of the center, part of the group’s mission to the scientific community of Michigan is to “enable your science.” This series of discussions is part of the process.

The next symposium, planned for March 2002 will focus on “Bioinformatics and Handling of Data.” For more information, call (313) 577- 0616.
