Bioinformatics researcher Philip LoCascio, who works in the genome analysis group of the life sciences division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tenn., will speak at noon Wednesday, Oct. 8, in room 109 of the Rogers Engineering and Computer Science Building on the Baylor University campus.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory played a central role in the mapping of the human genome. LoCascio will discuss successful computer technologies used in the project and will address the future of high performance computing.

LoCascio's team--the computational biology section--conducts genome research and systems development in genomic sequencing, computational genome analysis, computational protein structure analysis, high-performance biocomputing, bioinformation systems, biosystems modeling and genetics information management.
