Buffalo, NY – UB's Center for Computational Research hopes to grow its own future scientists by taking its sophisticated bioinformatics into area high schools.
"This is a DNA to protein sequence," said Jaclyn Shaw. "Here what we do is use Purl, which is our coding sequence, and what you do is type in a certain series of DNA. You can make up anything out of the four nitrogenous bases and then it prints out the actual amino acids that would be produced. That's what we've been working on."
