About the CBFG

Lab equipment photoThe Center for Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics (CBFG) at Miami University is a state-of-the-art research and training facility available for all members of the university.

The center, located in Pearson Hall, is available to any faculty, staff, and students at Miami University and is most heavily utilized by students in the Departments of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Geology, and Microbiology.

Although many faculty at Miami University utilize these tools provided by the CBFG, it is students that most often perform the daily work involved in this research. This includes both graduate and undergraduate students with a wide range of majors. Some projects even involve local high school students. Students can learn how to use some of the same high-tech equipment that is featured in popular TV programs, such as criminal investigation and medical dramas.
