We frequently receive outside funding for research, providing excellent opportunities for students. Recent funded research has included:


In conjunction with SD BRIN, Bioinformaticsworks to develop production quality bioinformatics software and media tools for students, professors and researchers.

Integrating the BioExtract Server with the iPlant Collaborative Grant

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the three-year grant assists the project as it attempts to integrate the BioExtract Server's functionality with the iPlant Collaborative Cyber infrastructure as well as to make data, analytic tools and workflows accessible, interoperable, easy to use and applicable to research and education.

BRIN (Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network) Grant

In conjunction with the School of Medicine, BRINis developing a database and research support application to collect biomedical research data and to make it readily available to others.

EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) Grant

This grant is focusing on scientific visualization research, which includes taking raw data and translating it into various virtual models that can be readily understood.

Plant Genome Database and Analysis Tools Grant

A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a way for scientists to easily search and analyze genetic sequence information stored in research databases across the country.

Colloquium Series

Research Colloquia

The Research Colloquium Series is free and open to the public.

Graduate Colloquia

The Graduate Colloquium series provides a forum for graduate students to present an area of their research. Presenting a colloquium is a requirement of the graduate degree in Computer Science. Colloquia are presented to the faculty, students and interested guests.
