state-of-the-art genetic, genomic, and functional genomic technology to
important research problems that can lead to new treatments for control of
invertebrate parasites.  The project will function within the dynamic
environment of our agribusiness biotechnology center, which will provide
high-throughput DNA sequencing, arraying, and bioinformatics support, as
well as a collegial environment comprising project teams from Novartis
