Faculty of Genetics
Dr. Rodolfo Aramayo joined the Department of Biology at Texas A&M University in 1997 and was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 2004. He obtained his Ph.D. in Genetics at the University of Georgia. His postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Dr. Robert L. Metzenberg at the University of Wisconsin and at Stanford University focused on studying the ascus-dominant behavior of a gene coding for a transcription factor. These studies resulted in the discovery of a novel meiotic silencing behavior dubbed Meiotic Silencing. Dr. Aramayo is a member of the Faculty of Genetics, the Program for the Biology of Filamentous Fungi (PBoFF), Graduate Faculty of the Health Science Center and Whole Systems Genomics Computational Advisory Group. He is a member of Aggie Research Scholars and Faculty Honors Program. He developed a course called “Genomics” in 1999, which he teaches at both undergraduate and graduate levels. He also developed a new graduate course called “Digital Biology” in 2013. He is responsible for the Campus-wide training in Genomics and Computational Biology and his team deployed “Galaxy,” a web-based interface to Computational Genomics software, both in the Department of Biology and the TAMU Supercomputer “Ada.”
