U-W Eau Claire Biology Department Gets New Toy

U-W Eau Claire's biology department just purchased a genetic sequencing machine with help from a grant form Beckman Coulter Incorporated.


The machine cost 120 thousand dollars, sixty of which was paid for by the university, and sixty coming from Beckman Coulter Incorporated.
The machine is expected to help better prepare students for graduate school and for their first job.


Julie Anderson, a professor of Biology at UW-Eau Claire, says, ultimately the goal is to understand all the genes in an organism, and understand what those genes do in hopes of being able to define and understand all the genetic diseases that effect humans these days.
