The Brendel Group is an energetic, friendly, and grateful team of faculty, staff, and students enjoying the privilege of working together. Our areas of interest span research topics in genome informatics, in particular as related to plant transcriptional control and pre-mRNA splicing, and computational infrastructure (cyberinfrastructure) for genome studies. You can find out more about our research, software development, and Prof. Brendel's teaching following the links on the top navigation bar.

Elbert Hubbard The world bestows its big prizes, both in money and honors, for but one thing. And that is Initiative. What is Initiative? I'll tell you: It is doing the right thing without being told.
(Opening lines of "Initiave" by Elbert Hubbard)

Can you carry a message to Garcia?
I have no data yet. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.
(Sherlock Holmes, in "A Scandal in Bohemia" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
