Center for Bioinformatics & Functional Genomics
at Miami University
The 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.
[Learn more about the CBFG in a CAS website video.]
CBFG provides students with hands-on training so that they can conduct their own research using instruments and software that undergraduates at larger universities would rarely see, let alone be able to use.

The CBFG is now accepting outside requests for analysis of DNA samples by Sanger sequencing and/or GeneMapper®. Please see our page on the Science Exchange website.
