Human Molecular Genetics Center

Tao Wang, PhDThe Human and Molecular Genetics Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin provides academic support for researchers at MCW who use the genomic sequence to understand disease and translate this information from the laboratory to the patient. Most of the research projects in the Center are funded by government agencies such as the National Institutes of Health. The research areas include various directions in genomics, high throughput sequencing and the development and use of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP's), microarray analysis and bioinformatics. Professor Tao Wang is associated with this Center.
