Biotechnology and genomic research is a major focus at Texas Tech University. The Center for Biotechnology and Genomics is designed to capitalize on this strength by facilitating research partnerships between highly productive research teams that extend across departmental boundaries. These partnerships are established to bring together complementary research efforts in biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics.
The Center for Biotechnology and Genomics is an integrated component of the international biotechnology and genome research community. Strong cooperative ties have been forged with academic institutions, federal laboratories and companies in Texas and throughout the region.
The Center provides:
- Core Facilities that offer instrumentation, support and training in various aspects of modern biotechnology.
- Multidisciplinary graduate studies in Biotechnology and Genomics leading to a Master of Science degree in Biotechnology which is designed to prepare students for technical positions in the rapidly growing biotechnology industry.
- A joint MS/JD degree, a program in conjunction with the Texas Tech Law School
- Membership is composed of a diverse group of faculty with multiple sources of funding from the academic campus and the HSC medical campus.
