Texas A&M System leading joint initiative on genomic research

Texas A&M University on Wednesday announced a research initiative aimed at genomic science.

The Whole Systems Genomics Initiative, or WSGI, will bring together 184 faculty members in 39 departments and units across nine colleges, the Texas A&M Health Science Center and other A&M System agencies with the goal of research into the genetics of organisms and their DNA sequences.

David Threadgill, a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and an industry leader in genomics, was hired from North Carolina State University to be the director of the WSGI.

Threadgill, an Aggie alumnus, said he will start on July 15.
