10 most wired campuses - WUSTL is no. 5 and The Genome Institute's twins Malachi/Obi Griffith are featured http://ow.ly/smdZr
These days, it's hard to imagine life on a college campus without an Internet connection. It's no longer just a matter of having a connection for students' laptops, they need something to hook up their tablets, smartphones, smart TVs and digital TV devices too.

The Genome Institute is helping to lead the way in genomics.
Introduction
As one of only three NIH funded large-scale sequencing centers, The Genome Institute at Washington University in St. Louis is helping to lead the way in high-speed, comprehensive genomics.

Our mission is to help improve the human condition by producing, studying and interpreting high-quality genome-based data to drive biological discoveries that range from the bench to the hospital bedside. We value the open sharing of information and ideas and encourage collaboration, while also engaging the next generation of scientists through educational outreach efforts.
