Molecular Sciences Institute

The Molecular Sciences Institute was an independent, non-profit research laboratory that combined genomic experimentation and computer modeling. The mission of the MSI is to predict the behavior of cells and organisms in response to defined genetic and environmental changes. Progress toward this goal will significantly increase our understanding of biological systems and help catalyze radical changes in how diseases are understood and treated. Moreover, by enabling a more predictive biological understanding, work at MSI should enable a design-based engineering of biological systems and thus help bring about improvements in agriculture and in the environment.
