We will learn about the new North Texas Genome Center from Dr. Jon Weidanz. 
As the only facility of its kind in the UT System and in North Texas, the SEIR-housed North Texas Genome Center (NTGC) will be a key research hub and offer whole genome sequencing and data interpretation on a fee-for-services basis. It represents a game-changing opportunity for UTA to benefit the region, state, and nation by establishing itself as a worldwide leader in precision health and big data.

"SEIR is game changer for UTA, especially in reference to research." says our member Kurt Bartley.
