Texas A&M Institute for Genome Sciences and Society

Texas A&M Institute for Genome Sciences and Society
Mission:

Enhance education research opportunities, and training in the genetic and genomic sciences through the support of core infrastructure and to stimulate cross-fertilization of the natural and social sciences to enhance the impact of genome science advances.

The Texas A&M Institute for Genome Sciences and Society (TIGSS) serves as the nexus for genomic research, training, and support. TIGSS functions as a virtual institute to unite genome scientists with researchers who study the social, economic, and ethical consequences and impacts of genomics technology, as well as bioinformatics scientists who conduct research on how to analyze and manage large datasets such as those generated by high-throughput genomics experiments.
