Arkansas Center for Genomic & Ecological Medicine (ArC-GEM)

Under Dr. David Ussery’s leadership, the Arkansas Center for Genomic & Ecological Medicine’s (ArC-GEM) work in third-generation sequencing has exciting potential applications for a range of emerging infections, including current collaboration with the Arkansas Department of Health on a project that could lead to rapid diagnosis of the Zika virus. Biomedical informatics extracts knowledge from large amounts of biological data with computers rather than in a traditional laboratory.
